Elementary Highly Capable Program Services
Lake Washington School District (LWSD) offers multiple tiers of service for highly capable students in grades one through five. Students who qualify for highly capable services maintain gifted designation through middle and high school.
Kindergarten-1st grade students identified as needing highly capable services are served through the K5HC model. In grades 2-5, students identified as needing highly capable services are currently served through three service models: K5HC, Pull-Out Quest, and Full-Time Quest. Students receiving Full-Time Quest services will automatically be placed in Middle School Quest services.
