Gifted and Talented Education is a program to support students who are identified as gifted. Nadaburg defines gifted students as those who achieve 97% or higher on the Cognitive Abilities Test version 7 (Cogat7). The district provides testing three times a year. A student may test once every twelve months. Once a student achieves 97% or higher and is deemed gifted they are not required to complete the Cogat 7 again. Students entering from another district in Arizona, and were deemed gifted by the entering district are considered gifted. Students entering from out of State must participate in the Cogat 7 unless they tested with the Cogat 7 prior with a 97% or higher score.
