Highly Capable Programs

Highly Capable Services

Program Services for Identified Students

Highly Capable Program Services are designed for students who: 1) are academically advanced, and 2) demonstrate high intellectual capability as measured by Highline Public School’s screening criteria.

Students receiving highly capable services are often independent learners who thrive on progressively challenging opportunities and utilize advanced problem-solving, in-depth study and presentation of curriculum matched to their demonstrated skills and capabilities.

Students receiving highly capable program services through options such as the Challenge Program, Earned Honors or a Highly Capable Learning Plan practice progressively higher-level thinking skills such as synthesis, analysis, creativity, inference, and evaluation utilizing grade level standards and learning materials. Within a given classroom or setting, students may demonstrate a varied level of advancement relative to selected content areas.

The goal of Highline's Highly Capable Program is to provide opportunities for students to achieve a greater depth of knowledge to reach their full potential as scholars. We strive to provide services that meet each student's needs and capabilities and help students cultivate habits of learning that will contribute to student success in school, college, career and life.
