Our school is the district magnet for gifted and talented students. Learners here experience an academic program that challenges and builds on student strengths, passions and interests in core subjects as well as science and the arts.
Elementary students can participate in an array of music programs including band, orchestra, choir and Suzuki strings; other activities like Science Olympiad, science fair, geography and spelling bees, debate, History Day and Word Masters take place during the day or after school.
At the elementary level, Capitol Hill has specialists in science, visual arts, drama and physical education as well as music, and students participate in a variety of local, state and national competitions. Admission for grades 1-5 is based on identification of gifted/talented status through assessments given in kindergarten and second grade.
