    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.  



    All district referral period:  Jan. 7-18, 2019

    The All-District Referral Period is now closed and families have been notified with testing times. 

    Students who were referred and tested will receive notification of qualification status by the third week of April.


    The mission of the Highly Capable Program is to partner with families and community to address the intellectual, social, and emotional needs of highly capable students by providing meaningful and challenging educational experiences.
