    This program provides students enrichment in reading and/or math via 30-minute weekly small group sessions. General education teachers also receive support to enhance in-class differentiation for highly capable and high ability students. 

    During the first half of the school year, highly capable kindergarten students will be identified in reading and/or math. Services will begin sometime during the second half of the year. Services will take place in the student’s neighborhood school during the regular school day. 

    A student who participates in the K5HC program in kindergarten will continue services through fifth grade. To qualify for Pull-out Quest or Full-time Quest, you will need to submit an application and reassess during a subsequent year’s open application window.
