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.
If your student enrolls in Northshore after the mid-October cutoff date, you may submit a portfolio of their academic and test history to our department or apply to participate in the screening assessment process. We begin accepting portfolios in March.
