GT Identification: Search for Students

Each year schools in St. Vrain Valley School District complete a process to identify students in grades K-12 who demonstrate exceptional ability or performance in one or more academic areas and may therefore qualify for Gifted/Talented educational services.  These students perform at least two years above grade level in their strength area(s) and require additional academic challenges in order to support their continued educational growth and progress.
