SIGNET is an acronym for SCHOOLS INVOLVED in GIFTED
NEEDS in EDUCATION TODAY.
In order to receive gifted placement services, students must qualify in
general or specific areas of academic aptitude. For students attending Hampton
Middle School, gifted services are offered at our school site. This program is
designed to offer a variety of educational opportunities that provide enrichment
and extension beyond the regular classroom curriculum. SIGNET is part of the Encore rotation and participating students attend every other day for the entire school year.
During the eligibility process, ability test scores, achievement test
scores, and recent grades are reviewed. Teachers, parents and students are asked
to submit written reports, which will lend insight into your child’s critical
and analytical thinking abilities as well as his or her task commitment for high
Written permission is required in order for your child to begin the
individual student identification process. If you wish for your child to be
considered for the gifted program, please contact Mrs.Riordan for
a Referral form.
