Highly Capable Elementary Services

Kindergarten - Fifth Grade

Highly Capable students in grades K-5 are served at their home schools in cluster groups.  Students at each grade level will be placed into a Cluster Group classroom where they will receive services which may include curriculum acceleration, curriculum compacting, differentiation, enrichment and/or flexible grouping.  Schools with fewer than 3 Highly Capable students per grade level will use differentiated instruction presented by the classroom teacher.

Self-Contained Classroom at Emerald Hills Elementary

The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District has a self-contained program for the most qualified students district-wide in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.  This program is differentiated from traditional classrooms by the intellectual rigor, accelerated pace, greater depth and breadth of content, and structured inquiry.  Most recent MAP (Measurement of Academic Progress) scores and additional inventories will be reviewed in determining eligibility for the self-contained program. Students who qualify for this program will have transportation provided.
