Highly Capable Services

Highly Capable Services are designed for students identified through cognitive testing and academic performance. We provide services and programs for students whose needs are beyond the scope of the general education classroom. Services are designed to provide challenging, integrated, and enriched curriculum.

Students are identified for Highly Capable Services in a two step process, universal screening and assessment.
