What is Quest?
The gifted and talented program in CISD is called Quest at the elementary level. It is an interdisciplinary program where students are encouraged to make connections and view the world in a more global manner.
When will testing take place?
Students in grades 1-3 will test in small groups during school hours in October. All 4th grade students will complete testing in their homeroom classes. Elementary students must meet the Phase I abilities test criteria in order to move forward to the Phase II portion of the screening process. Phase II involves an achievement test in math and reading.
