Gifted Testing

Giftedness is a category of exceptionality as defined by the ministry. Children must be identified through the IPRC process to register in a self-contained gifted class. DDSB offers classes to these identified students in grades 4 to 12.

The Durham District School Board provides two programming models for identified intellectually gifted students:
  • Remain in the regular class placement at the home school with accommodations provided by the classroom teacher or
  • Placement in a self-contained class with other identified gifted students.
