    Winter 2023 Highly Capable Screening Results for Grades 1+ were sent via ParentSquare on January 2, 2023. This is for families who signed up to have their student screened for further assessment for the Highly Capable Program. If your student is already receiving HiCap Services for math or ELA, they will have the opportunity to be assessed for the area they are not currently receiving services in only.  Being assessed again will not remove services already in place.

    Please make sure that you are logged in to your ParentSquare account in order to view our post.  If your student qualifies for further assessment, you will need to fill out the permission form within the ParentSquare post by January 13, 2023. No late registrations will be accepted. 

    If you have any questions, please contact the office at 206-393-4771 or by email: highlycapable@ssd412.org

    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.
