Refer Your Student for the GT Program


Staff members and parents can refer students for GT testing.

Please note, while a student may be evaluated for GT placement once annually, the nationally normed assessments administered are valid for up to two calendar years. Some assessments given during this test administration will be used to determine placement in future years.
