• Summer Math Boosters

    The Summer Math Boosters Website is now available for Highly Capable Math students.


    Students new to Highly Capable math will be studying mathematics at a grade level above for grades 3+ in the Fall. The summer math booster activities will help your student learn key topics from that "skipped" year of math content.


    Newly identified students who will be entering grades 1 and 2 will not need to access any math boosters, but may enjoy some of the activities in the “Math Games & More” tab.


    We are also making this site available to all families in case you feel that your student would benefit from additional math learning over the summer due to school closures this year.

  • 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 either Ridgecrest or 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.
