DSC_2281.pngWelcome to SUSD Gifted Programs!

SUSD's gifted education program is designed to provide appropriate services for students who require differentiated educational programs and/or services beyond those normally provided by the regular school program.

The program complies with Arizona Law that mandates that school districts identify gifted students as those scoring at or above the 97th percentile on a state approved test of cognitive reasoning ability. All students scoring at the 97th percentile or above on any one of the three batteries of the Cognitive Abilities Test or on any other appropriate test administered by Scottsdale District personnel will qualify for placement.
