Welcome to GT at Tomball Intermediate

Welcome to Tomball Intermediate!

Dear Parents,

   Welcome to TIS!  My name is Stephanie Scott and I am the GT Specialist.  
  This is my 19th year teaching at Tomball Intermediate and I am looking forward to a year filled with exciting learning experiences.  My goal is for every child to have a positive learning experience.  This will take us working as a team: teacher, child, and parent.  Communication, consistency, and positive reinforcement will be the key to success for your child.

   Your child's education is of the utmost importance to me, as I know it is to you.  
   If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please feel free to contact me by writing a note, calling me at 281-357-3150 ex: 4254, or emailing me at stephaniescott@tomballisd.net.  

   Thank you in advance for your cooperation.  It is only with students, parents, and teachers working together that we can provide your child with the best possible education.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child this school year.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Stephanie Scott

What is the definition of "gifted"?
Browse some of this great information about the characteristics of gifted individuals before proceeding through the process of testing your child for gifted and talented services in Tomball ISD. 

Parents are encouraged to visit the National Association for Gifted Children to explore the definitions of giftedness.

The Texas Association for Gifted and Talented has a great library of resources for parents on giftedness.

Testing/Survey Procedures: 
The state of Texas mandates that school districts use several different means of accessing for gifted services. Tomball ISD uses two recognized ability tests and one recognized achievement tests along with teacher and parent surveys. Similar test scores used by other district may also be used if accepted by the District Selection Committee.

Fall Testing is for students NEW to TISD.

 
For anyone who recently enrolled at Tomball Intermediate for the 2017-2018 school year from out of district....If your child was in the gifted program at their prior school, please contact me to review your child's testing information from prior school.  If further testing is needed, it will be completed in September 2017. To make testing requests, please email Stephanie Scott at StephanieScott@tomballisd.net ASAP.
