  • How is a student referred?

    Posted by:

    Parents, teachers, professional school staff, and students may refer those who exhibit gifted characteristics. Persons making nominations must complete the Referral Form and submit it to Aldridge's Gifted Specialist. If you are interested in referring your child for the gifted program, please see the grade level PACE team teacher or Courtney Watts for a referral packet. Referred students will be assessed at the home campus.
