Advanced Academics & Gifted and Talented

Students in Canutillo have the opportunity to take both enrichment and advanced courses.  In elementary school students are tested for gifted potential and if appropriate they participate in a pull-out enrichment program based on the Texas Performance Standards Project.  In grades 6-12, any student can take an advanced class in any of the four core subjects:  math, reading language arts, social studies, and/or science.

Each of our high schools help prepare our students for college.  Students have the option to take college level courses (dual credit or AP).  Also, they receive guidance on FAFSA, Apply Texas, and college entrance exams.
