Gifted Middle Program

At the secondary level, the Gifted Middle program is designed for students who are academically advanced or demonstrate high intellectual capability.  Successful candidates are often independent learners who thrive on progressively challenging opportunities, utilize advanced problem-solving, and in-depth study and presentation of curriculum matched to their demonstrated skills and capabilities.

Identified students are served through a full-time program housed at Brier Terrace Middle School. The Hi-Cap classrooms differentiate the strong, standards-based, regular Edmonds curriculum by providing an environment which allows students to identify and solve complex problems, explore concepts in greater depth and complexity, and to develop and create unique products. Using the National Association for Gifted Children Standards, the curriculum, instruction, and pacing is considerably more advanced and at a higher level than a regular classroom or an Honors program.

Gifted Students take the following classes as a group:
English  & Social Studies Block

Gifted Students take the following with neighborhood students:  
Algebra - 7th grade
Geometry - 8th grade

For the 2019-20 school year, all incoming 7th grade Highly Capable students will be placed into Algebra without 6th grade placement testing.
