Secondary Buildings
As HP students move into the secondary levels (Grades 6-12), they transition into accelerated and honors-level coursework as well as having opportunities to participate in a wide variety of co-curricular activities. The secondary level has a full-time Secondary HP Specialist who works closely with teaching staff and guidance counselors.  He also serves as a resource to HP students and their families at each of the four secondary buildings:
 
  • Pearson 6th Grade Center 
  • East Junior High
  • West Junior High
  • Shakopee High School
 

 
ELEMENTARY BUILDING HIGH POTENTIAL (HP) SPECIALISTS
 
Each of Shakopee's five elementary schools is staffed with a full-time High Potential (HP) teacher. Services for identified students increase by grade level, culminating in dedicated reading and math instruction for 4th and 5th grade HP students on a daily basis.
