Highly Capable

Highly Capable Testing

Camas School District offers an elementary program for highly capable students in grades three through five. This model involves identifying students who would benefit from specialized instruction and support at their grade level. Qualifying students have the option of being in a “cluster group” of similar students within a classroom at their grade level.

The Cognitive Abilities Test is scheduled for Saturday, April 21, 2012. If you are interested in program placement, please click the links below for more information.
