Students must meet specific criteria for placement in the Grand Prairie School for the Highly Gifted (SHG). Admission to SHG is a three-tiered process that involves assessments:
- Pre-Screening (2 sub-scores of 130 on a comparable cognitive exam)
- Final Screening scores (2 sub-scores of 135 on IQ test)
- Achievement scores of 80 or above in reading and math
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR BOTH IN-DISTRICT AND OUT-OF-DISTRICT APPLICANTS
While outside test scores may be used to meet pre-screening benchmarks, only testing conducted in Grand Prairie ISD by a licensed district diagnostician or psychologist will be accepted for final placement.
