The purpose of the gifted and talented identification process is to identify and serve the special educational needs of students who “perform or show the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment” (Texas Education Code §29.123). The process consists of three steps: referral, screening, and selection.
Students may be referred by parents, peers, community members, teachers, counselors, administrators, other professional personnel, or themselves. Referral forms, available on this site and in the front office on each campus, must be submitted to the campus G/T facilitator within the following dates.
Scholarships are available for Gifted/Talented students who want to attend academic or artistic summer camps in the Greater Houston area. For more information, review the TAGT Scholarship summary or visit the TAGT website. Camps are available for students of all ages.
