Does your child grasp concepts quickly and are they able to connect ideas across subjects and experiences?  Do they have an active working memory and like to delve deeply into their learning? You might have a GT student!.Nomination forms can be found HERE or at our front office. Nominations forms are due back to O. Henry Middle School by 4:00 on TBD. After forms have been turned in, the GT Advocate will contact parents with the next steps.  GT screening and testing requires parent/guardian permission by the campus deadline.
