Special Services

 
  • Testing

    All students in Grade 2 through Grade 6 participate each spring in the Iowa Assessment of Skills. This national, standardized test measures how a student performs the areas of Math, Reading, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science. These results, along with what has been observed by the teacher and parent, give a good indication of the strengths and weaknesses of each student.  

     
  • Gifted and Talented Program

    The EXPLORE program is available to students in grade 2-6 who have achieved a certain level of academic performance. Classes, held several times each month, challenge the thinking, creativity and performance of the participants.
