• Gifted Testing Information

    Gifted students are defined as those who score at or above the 97th percentile on any test for gifted identification approved by the Arizona State Board of Education. Children may qualify in one or more of three areas—verbal reasoning, quantitative (math) reasoning, and nonverbal reasoning.

    Non-identified students may only test once during each calendar year and up to three times total in grades K through 8. Referrals for gifted testing for children from kindergarten through eighth grade come from teachers, parents, and students. Students that have been previously identified as gifted will not be retested.

    Students who have been tested independently, in other districts, or in other states may automatically qualify for gifted services in Kyrene. A list of Arizona approved gifted tests are listed HERE. To submit results for review, please email esnyder@kyrene.org.

    Kyrene makes group testing available for students at their school site three times per year. The test will be proctored at your child's school during the school day.
