Not all kids are the same, but each is born with a unique gift.  The difference often lies in whether a student is provided with enough learning opportunities to discover and develop his innate gift.

Gifted Enrichment Program is designed to provide students opportunities to explore concepts in great depth and develop critical thinking abilities by building a solid knowledge base and cultivating logical thinking capabilities.  The program covers verbal, quantitative and non-verbal areas through fun and hands-on learning activities.  Students are encouraged to explore and discover while learning fundamental language arts and math.

Gifted Test Prep Program is designed for students who have a sound knowledge base and logical thinking capabilities at or above his age level.  It familiarizes students with CogAT and ITBS test contents and formats by taking both practice tests.  With practice students will build test-taking confidence while learning time management skills.  

In recent years, NWES Academy has helped students across school districts of Bellevue, Lake Washington, Mercer Island and Northshore pass screening tests and get into gifted or highly capable programs.
