Discovery Program at WCH
Discovery is the academic enrichment/acceleration program provided for students who have been identified as intellectually gifted and talented. All students from 2nd to 5th grade are eligible to be selected for the Discovery program at West Cypress Hills Elementary. In order to be identified as gifted and talented, each student must undergo a screening and selection process. Assessment opportunities are made available at least once per year. To maintain validity of a nationally normed test, a student is not allowed to retake the same test within a two year window.To find out more about the LTISD Discovery Program, please click here.
