Extensions programming supports students with advanced intellectual abilities who are achieving at a level much higher than their current grade. They can grasp new ideas, enjoy being challenged, are highly curious and have an advanced vocabulary.
Students must be in elementary or junior high and have a psychological assessment completed. Contact your child’s school for information about eligibility and special education programming options.
All Edmonton Public Schools programming is based on curriculum determined by Alberta Education. Students enrolled in Extensions will receive the same high-quality education offered in all of our programs.
Most schools offering special education needs programming have some yellow busing options available. For more information about busing, contact your child’s school or call Student Transportation at 780-429-8585.
