The Elementary Advanced Program (EAP) is a program that provides students with the opportunity for advanced level work with students from across the district with like academic ability and interest. EAP classrooms are self-contained classrooms. EAP serves second through sixth grade at Bear Creek Elementary and Shelton View Elementary.
Applicants qualify based on scores from the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS), a standardized academic achievement test; and an aptitude test, the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) . Student selection is based on academic achievement in reading comprehension, applied math concepts, performance on the cognitive abilities tests, and space availability. The Placement Committee makes final determinations about student selection.
Students must reside in the Northshore School District or attend a Northshore school on a current waiver to apply. EAP placement is offered first to students who live in the district.
