Gifted Services
Reynoldsburg City Schools embraces the diversity that makes our District strong, including our students identified as gifted.
 
The District currently provides gifted services to students identified as gifted in grades 3-12. Services are available in mathematics, reading/language arts, science, social studies, and visual or performing arts courses. All services are provided by qualified teachers who are either endorsed as gifted intervention specialists or who have received on-going professional development in providing enrichment and gifted education services. Academic gifted services are available at all six elementary schools, all four middle/junior high schools, and all four academies of Reynoldsburg High School. Gifted services will also be available at 9X Impact, Reynoldsburg City Schools' innovative freshman experience, beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.
 
The Gifted Services department supports the District by providing screening and assessment opportunities to identify students who are gifted in all areas recognized by the Ohio Department of Education. All assessments are approved by the Ohio Department of Education for identifying gifted learners, and are administered by qualified, licensed professionals.
 
In addition to whole-grade screening opportunities in the 2nd, 4th, and 6th grade, the District also accepts referrals to screen students who may be gifted. Links to the gifted referral form can be found on the sidebar of this page.
 
The Gifted Services department also supports the District by providing acceleration services for students who are academically advanced. The District is in the process of finalizing structured pathways for acceleration in mathematics, language arts, and science that will allow students to begin earning high school credit in the 8th grade.
 
Reynoldsburg City Schools also accepts referrals for early entrance to kindergarten for any student whose 5th birthday falls after September 30. Referral forms for early entrance may be found in the Acceleration section of this site.
 
Please refer all questions regarding gifted services to either your building principal or the Coordinator of Gifted Services.
