Each year, the Gifted Program Office selects students to be enrolled in kindergarten and other program vacancies using test scores and the federal desegregation guidelines of 65% minority and 35% non-minority candidates. The student population represents the racial, ethnic, socio-economic and geographic diversity of the city of Chicago.
It is the official policy of the Chicago School Board of Education and of Thomas A. Edison Regional Gifted Center that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, disability, sex, religion, national origin or age be excluded from admission or be subjected to discrimination or exclusion under any of our programs.
Application is currently closed for the 2008-2009 school year. Parents interested in having children tested for the 2009-2010 school year can obtain more information through the following link:http://www.cpsmagnet.org/
