    Important Shadowbriar Dates:  

    Students in HISD can be tested for GT once each calendar year.  This year, HISD has switched to only one testing window

    GT testing: December 10th – January 14th.

    In addition, all unidentified kindergarten and 5th grade students will be tested during a universal testing period.  Two tests, CogAt and Iowa, will be given in the months of

    November (14th – 17th) and December (1st – 9th)

     If you have a student in K-5th grades, be watching for more information to come home in the Wednesday folder.

    Identified students at Shadowbriar receive classes in heterogeneous classes meaning all classes are a mix of GT and non-GT students.  All teachers at Shadowbriar are GT certified.  Students are given the opportunity to explore advanced projects using the Independent Investigation Method. 

    This year, we will have a GT expo specifically for GT projects.  These projects will be in addition to the STEAM projects that will be completed by all magnet students.  More magnet information will be available at open house.
