How does a student become a part of the Enhanced Program?

A student must undergo a variety of tests and professional evaluations in
order to be deemed "gifted". Once this exceptionality is diagnosed, an
Individual Education Plan will be created for the student. This IEP may
include placement in a fully self-contained gifted classroom for certain
academic courses.
For a full, comprehensive explanation of how a student gets identified and
placed in a PDSB gifted class, please refer to the "DOWNLOADS" link on this
website.
In addition, students must live within the Lorne Park Secondary School
catchment area. To check if you're in LPSS boundaries, go to
http://gisplant.peelschools.org and click on "School Locator". You will then
enter your address and click "Search" to find your area schools.
Students who meet these requirements but who live further than 4.8 km from
LPSS are eligible for bus transportation.
