The Sumner School District defines highly capable students as those who demonstrate, or have the potential to demonstrate, outstanding levels of aptitude (defined as exceptional ability to reason and learn).  We recognize and embrace the development of highly capable students and their use and possession of untrained, natural ability (Gagne).
 
 
Do you know a student who performs at significantly advanced academic levels when compared with other students of the same age? Consider referring them for Sumner School District's Highly Capable Services by completing a Referral Packet
 
 
Referrals are no longer being accepted for the 2017-18 School Year.
