Selective Enrollment Elementary Schools
The Selective Enrollment Elementary Schools are founded on the principle that all students are entitled to equal opportunity to develop in relationship to their abilities. A citywide network of program models and services is available to modify, supplement, and support the standard school program in order to challenge children identified as gifted and talented. These are students who consistently demonstrate superior general reasoning ability and/or potential to excel in a specific academic, creative or artistic areas. 

Selective Enrollment Elementary Schools consist of Regional Gifted Centers, Regional Gifted Centers for English Learners, Classical Schools, Academic Centers, and the International Gifted Program. Testing is required in order to be considered for acceptance into these schools.
