Gifted Programs

Parents, please see the following message from Greenville County Schools regarding Gifted Programs.  This information will also be posted on our website.  There are many inquires about how students are chosen to participate in Gifted Programs and to attend the Charles Townes Center for highly gifted students, located within Sterling School.  The criteria can be found on this website: Criteria 

GT Screening Registration Form

Many private schools in our area do not administer nationally normed aptitude tests along with an achievement test.  For that reason, on Friday, April 28, 2023, there will be an opportunity for students who reside in Greenville County and attend school here (home-schooled, private school or public school) to take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT).  If your child has already taken an aptitude test within the past two years, or if his/her school administers this testing, it is not necessary for your child to participate.  Second grade students take this annually.  You can submit those test results to Jane Snyder at  Upon reviewing data from this testing event, we will determine if other testing or information is necessary for your child to be identified as Gifted and Talented.  The results of the April testing will be available by mid-May.  You will be notified by email.

Please submit your information in the registration form by noon on Tuesday, April 11, 2023.  Please return a form for each child that you wish to have tested.  If your child has any special needs, please note them in the form.  You will receive confirmation of your child's registrations by April 17, 2023.

Testing will be administered at Overbrook Child Development Center located at 111 Laurens Road, Greenville, SC.  Students and parents should check in at the front of the school between 12:45-1:00.

Students will be tested in small grade level groups to allow appropriate distancing and monitoring.  Please have each child bring 2 pencils for testing.  Allow two hours for your child's testing which includes breaks for them.  If you feel that your child needs to have a snack for one of the breaks, please send it in an individually wrapped package.  Also, students should bring a water bottle.  During testing, parents may sit in the lunchroom and wait for their children.  There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions, too!

Bryson Boulder


Have you signed up to paint the BES Boulder yet for a special event for your Bear?  It's $10 to rent for the day and information can be found in the sign up links below.

Sign up to Paint

Please note that when you sign up to paint, you can paint the largest boulder.  Please leave the one that says "BES Rocks" and the other smaller ones the way they are.  If the day before is still open, you can reserve both without paying an additional fee.  We just have to make sure spots are available.

Thank you for supporting our Bears.  We appreciate you!
