GT Identification/Curriculum

  • Grades K-8

    • Students, parents/guardians, family members, Pearland ISD professional staff and/or community members may nominate a student by completing a GT nomination form.
    • Nominations are accepted at any time during the school year; however, assessments are completed according to a published district timeline.
    • Students may be assessed once during any academic year.
    • The completed GT nomination and Parent Permission to Test form with signatures must be sent to Pearland ISD Advanced Academics at 1928 N. Main, Pearland, TX 77581.

    Grades 9-12

    • Students may complete their own GT nomination form, or they may be referred for gifted screening by any person who knows the student.
    • GT referrals for students in grades 9-12 may be made at any time. Two testing times (one each semester) will be offered as needed. If a GT referral is made within two weeks of testing, the student may test the following semester. 
    • The completed GT nomination and Parent Permission to Test form with signatures must be sent to Pearland ISD Advanced Academics at 1928 N. Main, Pearland, TX 77581.
    • Students must complete a portfolio, which may include a resume, a current transcript, SAT or ACT scores.
