Early Entrance Testing for Kindergarten
(2015-2016 School Year)
Testing for Early Entrance to Brunswick City School District for the 2014-2015 school year will take place in August 2015. Only children who are both academically talented and of superior ability are admitted for Early Entrance. The placement criteria are set at a high level of difficulty so that the under-aged child will not be disadvantaged by his or her age difference. Children will have an individual evaluation by a school psychologist to determine whether they meet all of the following criteria: intelligence within the very superior range of ability as measured by a standardized intelligence test (i.e., children whose intelligence falls within the gifted range); visual motor maturity at a 6-year-old level (i.e., children whose paper/pencil skills equal a first-grade child); superior reading and math skill development; evidence of superior social/emotional adjustment as observed by the school psychologist.
Parents who feel their child may meet all of the above criteria need to write a letter which includes the following information:
Name of parents or guardians
Elementary school child would attend
Describe why you feel your child meets the early entrance requirements
