CGUHSD maintains that gifted students are found in all walks of life. Exceptional ability can be found in all cultures, linguistic groups, socioeconomic levels, and in individuals with disabilities. We strive to identify a population of gifted students that reflects the residents of our community. Services are provided to any student that meets or exceeds the 97th percentile on a state-approved test, as required per state law. CGUHSD also services students who score in the 95th percentile on the aforementioned tests. Each gifted student is an individual with differing talents, personality, and passions. CGUHSD aims to address the individual learning needs of each of our gifted students so that we may provide the most suitable educational opportunities possible and prepare our students to enter the worlds of both higher education and work. Gifted education in the District focuses on differentiating the content, process, and product of curriculum offered to mainstream students while maintaining a focus on mastery of the Common Core Standard.
