Gifted and Talented
Chatswood High School has a proud tradition of gifted education and offers a Selective stream and a Gifted and Talented class in response to the Department of Education and Community's priority policies on Gifted and Talented Children and Accelerated progression. Positions in the Gifted and Talented class are highly competitive and the application process will include testing. These positions are only available to our local area students. This program serves a need of challenging talented students in a local co-educational setting. In addition, it provides added dimension to our aim of providing each student with an excellent academic, cultural, social and physical education.
It is important to note that placements in this class are maintained on the basis of academic performance and students may be moved from this class at any time. This may be for individual subjects or all subjects if a high academic performance is not maintained.
Please note, applications are only open to students who live in the local intake area for Chatswood High School.
