Changes to Highly Capable Programs
Posted on 04/02/2018
The Puyallup School District is committed to providing access to highly capable students from all backgrounds to accelerated learning and enhanced instruction. The construction of new elementary classrooms in the Puyallup School District, including the new Southwest elementary school, and the examination of district boundaries by the community boundary committee present a unique opportunity to expand access to the Highly Capable ProgramClick here for a printable version of the new Highly Capable Growth Plan.


Grades K-2: 
Young Scholars (K-2) Program will continue to serve students in each elementary school.

Grades 3-6:
2019-2020: While maintaining eight host schools, the plan includes relocating some QUEST host schools to accommodate the need for additional classrooms.  The plan will change the current QUEST configuration of a 5th/6th multi-age classroom to a 5th  grade classroom and a 6th grade classroom at each QUEST site.  If numbers indicate the need, some sites may also have a separate 3rd grade and 3rd grade QUEST classroom.
