Highly Capable Infographic

Washington State's Highly Capable Program is a component of the state's program of basic education. Districts must define an educational program for Highly Capable students and comply with specific program requirements that are integrated across the K–12 continuum of services.

In the Renton School District, we provide an academic program in Kindergarten through 12th grade with various services models that includes instruction and services that enrich learning for students identified as Highly Capable, based on assessment data. To be eligible for identification, students must live within the Renton School District boundaries, including home schooled students. 

Identification Process

The Renton School District uses multiple measures to identify students who perform or show potential for performing at significantly advanced academic levels when compared with others of their age, experiences, and/or environments.

Service Models

The Renton School District offers a Highly Capable Program with an emphasis on academics.  The service models offered vary depending on grade level and school location and are subject to change from year to year.

The Renton School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.
