Elementary classrooms, grades 1-5, are self-contained for highly capable students who meet the state's criteria for highly capable. Teacher and parents nominate students to be considered for placement into the Highly Capable classes.

Middle School Highly Capable classes are called hi cap /advanced classes and include ELA and Social Studies. Math classes are accelerated for highly capable students.

High School Honors and Advanced Placement courses are among the advanced options available. High school students self-select these classes based upon their interests, skills, and abilities and with the guidance of parents and school counselors.
