Not sure if you should refer your student for Gifted and Talented testing? Confused about what "gifted" or "high achieving" means? Please check out this information presentation from our Advanced Academics department.
All campuses in Humble ISD provide screening, identification, and services for Gifted and Talented students. In order for a student to be identified as Gifted and Talented (GT) in Humble ISD, data from several quantitative and qualitative criteria are collected over a four-week period to identify students who exhibit potential and/or perform at levels significantly beyond the norm in areas of superior cognitive ability and/or specific academic achievement.
