Programs for High Ability Students
Elementary students grades K – 5 are assigned in small groups with high performing peers within the general education classroom and receive differentiated instruction. In addition, all students grades 3 – 5 who qualify are eligible to participate in the COMPASS (Children On Many Paths Always Seeking Solutions) program, which consists of self-contained classrooms located at three schools: Allisonville, Crooked Creek and Fox Hill. Any elementary student who qualifies for the program may attend one of these school sites based on the location of their home address and transportation is provided. Students who have been identified with high abilities, but choose not to participate in the COMPASS program, remain at their home school. They are assigned to a general classroom with high performing peers and the curriculum is differentiated to meet their needs.
Middle school honors courses in the core academic subject areas are designed for students in grades 6 -8 with content specific academic strengths. Advanced math placement is also available for eligible students.
North Central offers students programs that challenge them to achieve their potential. More than one third of the students are enrolled in one or more Advanced Placement (AP) classes. Dual credit courses offered through the Advanced College Project (ACP) with Indiana University and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program (authorized in 1988) give hundreds of students the opportunity to earn advanced standing in college while they are still in high school.
