Middle School High Ability Identification

The MCCSC Office of High Ability Education has begun the middle school high ability identification/application process for the 2019-2020 school year for incoming seventh grade students. Notification letters will be mailed on Friday, January 25, 2019 to current sixth grade students who automatically qualify for middle school high ability services (advanced ELA or ALPS) based on scores on the In View and NWEA assessments. Application materials for students who want to appeal for placement in middle school high ability programs are due to the Office of High Ability Education on or before Friday, February 8, 2019. Placement in advanced math classes is a separate process and will occur late second semester.


If you have questions about the application/identification process, a parent information meeting will be held on Thursday, January 24 at 6:30 P.M. in the Tri-North Middle School auditorium. This meeting is open to any parent or student interested in MCCSC middle school high ability programs. Information about high ability programs may also be found on the MCCSC website at
