What is Quest?

The gifted program 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 this 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 with 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.
