Applications for all eligible students will open on November 7, 2022.
Why not start with the best? The gifted services provided by the Paradise Valley Unified School District in Phoenix, Arizona... If you are looking for a 'complete package' on how to serve gifted children, PVUSD is the Holy Grail you seek."

Definition of Gifted Students
PVSchools defines gifted students as those children of lawful school age who show, or have the potential for showing, an exceptional level of performance in one or more areas of expression (National Association for Gifted Children). In accordance with the AZ State Mandate for Gifted Education, gifted education services are offered to all students who score at or above the 97th percentile on a verbal, quantitative, and/or nonverbal battery of a test included on the Arizona State-Approved Gifted Test List.
