Every year, Northshore School District evaluates enrolled students for Highly Capable Program eligibility. Students who participate in this process may receive a Highly Capable qualification. From kindergarten through eighth grade, a Highly Capable qualification enables students to engage in advanced-level work in their area(s) of strength. In high school, all students (regardless of HiCap qualification status) may enroll in advanced courses.
If your student is in kindergarten, no action is required at this time. For all other Northshore students, your first step is to complete an online permission form.
Students Enrolling After Mid-October
If your student enrolls in Northshore after the mid-October cutoff date, you may complete the Transfer of Highly Capable Designation Application to have prior highly capable testing or participation considered for transfer into Northshore, or you may apply to participate in the screening and assessment process makeups. We accept transfer applications at any time.
