        This year, all second graders will take the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test screening assessment. Students with advanced scores will be considered for a gifted referral.

       The search for and identification of gifted students is an on-going process. All candidates are created through a referral process. Referrals can be made by school personnel, parents, peers, or self -referral.

      Our teachers provide advanced learners ongoing opportunities to investigate, research, and work independently through advanced study. Areas of giftedness identified in Augusta County are: mathematics, science, English, art, music, and theater.
