Box Hill High School is committed to providing appropriate educational opportunities for our academically gifted students through its specifically designed program known as GAPP (Gifted Academic Potential Program).
This program complies with the guidelines that were established for SEAL schools, and BHHS continues to be a member of the TAASS.
BHHS teachers receive professional development in the education of gifted and talented students and many of our teachers have masters qualifications in gifted education.
Structure of the program
We have specifically designed this program to run for the full six years of secondary schooling for our students. In very rare cases, a student may have the option of completing their six years of schooling in five years.
Note: Continued good academic performance is necessary for students to remain in the program. The school reserves the right to place students in more appropriate settings if academic performance in the program is not satisfactory.
GAPP Parents Support Group
A GAPP Parent Support Group meets two evenings per term to clarify and explore specific needs. Guest speakers are often invited to present at these meetings. Further information will be posted on Compass and emailed to parents throughout the year as events become available.
PLEASE NOTE: We can only guarantee enrolment for students living within our designated school zone. Students who apply for our GAPP program are subject to the same enrolment criteria. See our Enrolment page for details.
