Admission Process for Private School Students

Due to an LAUSD policy change, private school students who reside within LAUSD boundaries can no longer be assessed for gifted identification. In order to request an assessment by an LAUSD psychologist, the students need to be enrolled at an LAUSD school. 

For families interested in Portola Highly Gifted Magnet, the request for an intellectual assessment should be made no later than the middle of 4th grade to allow for the scheduling and administration of the test. Parents should contact the gifted coordinator for processing applications for the gifted intellectual assessment.  Ideally a student should be identified as highly gifted (HG) or highly gifted applicable (HGA) before entering 5th grade. This time-frame will allow parents to apply through the eChoices website prior to the close of the application window, which is typically during the first week of November.

Please feel free to call the magnet office at 818-654-3354 should you need further assistance.
