    Welcome to Gifted Services at Anthem School

    Students who have been identified as gifted according to an Arizona state approved test of cognitive ability with a score in the 95th percentile or above receive gifted services.

    Testing and Placement Information

    Student placement within Gifted Cluster classes in 1st-6th grades is based on a state-approved test score.  Deer Valley provides testing for elementary students at each school site three times per year using the Cognitive Abilities Test (COGAT).  Testing occurs in the Fall and Winter as needed.  Spring testing of Kindergarten-5th grade is for placement the following school year.  Contact your child's teacher if you feel your child exhibits gifted characteristics.
