Identification
The nomination process begins two weeks before each testing period. Either a parent or teacher may initiate a nomination. The testing requirements for the Leilehua Complex include the following: Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT), Iowa Test of Basic Skills® (ITBS®), Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT), Lexile Measure, a writing sample, and parent-teacher rating scales. Parents are notified of the student profile status once all tests have been scored.

Enrichment Pathways
Two enrichment pathways are being offered this year: A) Innovation and B) Leadership. Students enrolled in the Innovation Pathway will focus on exploring The Global Goals and the Design Thinking process. Students enrolled in the Leadership Pathway will focus on confident decision-making skills and effective communication skills. Both pathways aim to empower students to become positive change agents who believe they can make a difference.
