The PV Schools Self-contained Gifted Program, located at Sonoran Sky serves highly and profoundly gifted students in grades 1-6.
The Self-Contained Gifted Program is designed for high-achieving, highly-gifted students whose needs may not be met by regular gifted programs. Students in the program work two or more years beyond grade level with intellectual peers. They participate in special areas such as PE and the arts, and are included in all grade-level activities and field trips.
To qualify for the self-contained gifted program students must have an IQ of 140+ or gifted test scores of 97+ in two of the three areas: verbal, quantitative, or non-verbal, with the third score being 90 or higher. Preferably verbal and quantitative scores will be 97-99 percent.
