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 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.
Fall Semester – The last day of the 1st nine weeks of school is the referral deadline for grades K-12.
A teacher, parent, student, or other interested persons observing a student with consistent evidence of gifted characteristics may refer him/her during the appropriate referral window.
