Highly Capable & Gifted

Field Trip

Is Your Student Highly Capable?

  • Are they exceptionally curious?
  • Do they come up with complex and abstract ideas?
  • Does your student learn new ideas without instruction or direction?
  • Do they ponder advanced questions with depth and from multiple perspectives?
  • Does your student learn exceptionally quickly?
  • Do they enjoy solving problems, especially with numbers and puzzles?

If you see most or all of these characteristics in your student, they may be Highly Capable!
