Open Referral Period for Darien's Gifted Program Grades 1-8

January 2nd, 2019 - January 25th, 2019


Dear Parents,

If you have a child in Grades 1-8 who you believe may be gifted, you may refer him/her for an evaluation for Darien's gifted and talented program, Idea.  The referral and evaluation period will identify students for program placement in September, 2019.

Before referring your child, please consult with your child’s teacher and review the information on typical traits of gifted children provided by The National Association for Gifted Children: https://www.nagc.org/resources-publications/resources/my-child-gifted/common-characteristics-gifted-individuals.

To submit a referral, send an email to your child's teacher and assistant principal. At Middlesex School please contact Garan Mullin, Assistant Principal. For additional information about the evaluation process refer to the program's website, www.darienps.org/IDEA. Thank you.
