PAL & SPECTRUM PROGRAM
We have at our school what is called the “Spectrum” Program, which is a full-time program for high-ability learners. This program contains a challenging curriculum with an emphasis on higher level critical and creative thinking skills including depth, complexity and rigor. The Pals program, which is not held at our school, is specifically for grades 1-3 while the Spectrum Program is for grades 4-6.
Who should apply? Current K-5 students who consistently demonstrate above average academic ability and would benefit from learning in a faster paced environment with their cognitive peers. These programs offer a challenging curriculum with an emphasis on higher level critical and creative thinking skills including depth, complexity, and rigor.
The main testing window for 2-5th grades is in October-November and for K-1st grade in November-December. Between January and March we continue to test on a case by case basis. Placement for students begins in April.
