NEW GT Testing Information Update

If your student is entering Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year and is applying to a Vanguard Magnet campus or currently in grades Kindergarten - 12 and is interested in gifted and talented identification or attending a school that requires gifted and talented identification for admissions, you may do so now! Please visit the Gifted & Talented webpage to complete an online testing request form.

To ensure families have all the information they need before the application and lottery process closes, you MUST request testing for your child no later than December 8, 2023.

Please note that parents of second-grade students or students who have previously been identified as gifted and talented do not need to request additional testing.

Please email Lauren Adams with any questions.
