Identification:

Students are identified through annual standardized test scores, including MAP scores at the middle school level and ASPIRE, WKCE, and ACT scores at the high school level. Other identification occurs through parents, teachers, and peers. Students in the 9th grade have an opportunity to participate in Northwestern University's Midwest Academic Talent Search (NUMATS) by taking the ACT test at a local testing center. More information for the test can be provided upon request.
 
Students expressing an interest in any area will get full support from the staff at Whitewater High School to get the maximum benefit from their talents.
