    The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District defines highly capable students as those who demonstrate, or have the potential to demonstrate, outstanding levels of aptitude (defined as exceptional ability to reason and learn).  We recognize and embrace the development of highly capable students and their use and possession of untrained, natural ability. Do you know a child who performs at significantly advanced academic levels when compared with other students of the same age?  If so, consider referring them for Highly Capable services.  


    The referral window will be open from Tuesday, November 14, 2023 until Thursday, December 7, 2023.

    Second and fifth grade students will participate in a Highly Capable Universal Screener in the fall, therefore do not need to be referred to be considered for services.
