LEAP Referral Process

  • All Lindbergh students in grades 1-3 will participate in Universal Screening. Families will be notified if their student qualifies for further gifted screening and more information will be solicited at that time. Referrals will be accepted for students in kindergarten and grades 4-12.

    Referrals submitted between Jan. 1-Aug. 31 are part of the first semester testing cycle, with testing occurring during the fall semester of the school year. Students who qualify during this testing period will begin classes in January. Testing for kindergarten students also takes place during first semester. Referrals must be submitted by Oct. 10 in order for kindergarten students to be part of the first semester testing group.

    Referrals submitted between Sept. 1-Dec. 31 are part of the second semester testing cycle, with testing occurring during the spring semester of the school year. Students who qualify during this testing period will begin classes in August.

    The LEAP referral process is approved by the Lindbergh Schools Board of Education and certified by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Transfer Students

  • Students transferring into Lindbergh Schools may submit results from intelligence tests that were administered by their former school districts. Tests need to be the same as those used by Lindbergh Gifted Education. Previous enrollment in a gifted program does not guarantee enrollment in LEAP.

    Students with scores at or above the 95th percentile will be considered for LEAP. Test results must be received by our office at least one week prior to the start of each semester. Information received after this point will be considered for the following semester's admissions process.
