tag line Gifted Education
The state of Ohio defines a gifted student as one who “performs or shows potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment.  There are established criteria to identify students who meet this definition.
 
New Philadelphia City Schools actively seeks to find students who meet the criteria for being identified as gifted.  All students in grades 2-8 are tested each year using NWEA's MAP test to determine if they meet the criteria.  
 
Additionally, whole-grade screening is done for all students in grade 2 and in grade 5, using the Otis Lenon School Ability Test.  This testing will take place during the first week of March.  Parents may choose to opt-out their child from whole-grade screening by putting their request in writing and submitting it to the building principal prior to March 1.
 
Parents/guardians of students who are identified as being gifted will be notified in writing of their child's gifted identification(s).
