    Frequently Asked Questions about HiCap Eligibility

  • HiCap Magnet Program Transportation 

    Specific information regarding transportation for students who will attend the Magnet HiCap Program will be communicated in the middle to late August, from the Transportation Department. Students who attend the magnet program at Meridian Park will be transported to and from their neighborhood school and the magnet school.


    Important: Students need to be able to walk or have transportation to and from their home (or care provider) to their neighborhood school. Students cannot take the regular neighborhood buses as the bus schedules do not line up.

  • Transferring into HiCap in Shoreline

    If your student was enrolled in a highly capable program in another district, he or she may be eligible to transfer directly into Shoreline's hi-cap program. Check out our process for Applying for Highly Capable Service Transfer.

  • Parent Presentation on Highly Capable Children

    On October 3, 2016, the Shoreline HiCap Advocacy Group held an informative session by Austina De Bonte for any parent or educator interested in student giftedness. The presentation was entitled What Parents & Educators Need to Know About Smart Kids.
