Overview

Some students have academic skills, cognitive abilities, leadership abilities and creative talents beyond their classmates. High potential learners have the right to an educational environment where their unique affective and education needs are planned for and respected. High Potential  services are designed to meet the unique needs of these students.

High Potential students are children and youth with outstanding talent relative to others of their age, experience or environment. High Potential students are identified through a screening process that is multi-dimensional, including teacher observation, parent input, student input, classroom performance, and standardized test information. Parents/guardians who have questions or concerns about their child and services should call their school or the District High Potential Department, 952-401-5100.

1) to provide programs and opportunities for students to discover, develop and realize their potential as individuals and as contributing, responsible members of the community and 2) to encourage achievement at a level commensurate with the student's ability.
