Gifted & Talented Program

G/T students will be given a Cognitive Abilities Test in order to determine qualification. Due to the fact that an updated version of the test had to be ordered, there has been a delay in administering the exam. Our hope is to receive the exams by Christmas and then to give the test as soon as possible after the Christmas break. We apologize for the inconvenience and the postponement. If there are any further developments or issues with the shipment, we will let you know as soon as possible.
