The program is set up to promote growth for students depending on their own abilities, I loved going there as a child and wish that I lived close enough now to send my children. So many great people have come out of that school; the things I learned prepared me for the real world, it was suprising to find in high school how many people had no clue on how or what to do after graduation. I feel priveledged to have been able to have attend such a great school.

This school is not necessarily a great school for the most highly gifted. Keep in mind that 40-50% of kids in the better St. Paul schools test into this program. And it is completely random how kids are admitted - not at all based on need. If your child is above the 99th percentile in IQ and/or achievement, look very carefully. That being said, it's a great school for moderately gifted kids if you like a larger school environment.

I'm a parent at this school and it is excellent. There is a lot of parent involvement, which raises money for extra programs, like visiting artists, etc. which are not covered by the district's budget. That being said, the kids in this school test as 'gifted & talented,' which means that of course the test scores are high, and the teachers don't have to deal with as wide an ability spectrum as they would have to manage at a typical school. Still, they rise to the occasion of challenging these kids in many fantastic, creative ways, and the homework is usually quite manageable. There are a few parents who get wrapped up in the 'status' of having a child at this school, but most people are quite down-to-earth, and it has been a wonderful experience

I am an alumni of Capitol Hill (attended all of 1-8th grades), and as I write my personal statement for my Graduate School applications, I am very proud to list Capitol Hill in my biographical sketch. C.H. was a wonderful school that I feel counter acted many personal and/or family problems that may cause problems in a young child's development and education in any other public school setting. I know that Mrs. Ford has since retired, but I'd still like to give her a super big thank you for being the best 1st grade teacher that I will never forget. And I will also mention that Capitol Hill really does prepare its students for success in high school and college beyond that.

I am a student at Capitol Hill. The teaching staff is mostly excellent, except for a few teachers who feel they can make personal comments and step outside of their teaching boundaries. I have learned so much from this school and I appreciate all I have been given. I feel ahead of a lot of other students that may go to the same highschool and prepared for the homework load. This school taught me so much. The extracurriculars are pretty decent, however the tech crew deserves more credit than they have been given.

My grandson entered Capital Hill Magnet last year. The difference in this school compared to what we previously thought was a very adequate school,is remarkable. The teaching staff is creative and respectful of their students. He is happy to attend, has learned more, & is no longer bullied, (as was the case at the last school.) My only complaint is that sometimes the homework is quite a challenge for us to help him with. It is a wonderful school.

I am a Capitol Hill Alumni and proud to be one of those talented and gifted students from CH. I acquired numerous skills, characteristics, friends, and memories from this impressive school. I had a lot of great times there and I can definitely credit my creativity and intelligence to CH. Had I had gone to another school, I don't think I would have came out so focused on achieving my education and maintaining my straight A's. So thank you Capitol Hill and every parent should try to send their kids there! its a wonderful school!

In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-III (MCA-III) to test in math in grades 3 through 8 in reading in grades 3 through 8 and 10 and in science for grades 5 and 8, and once in high school. The MCA-III is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Minnesota Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, data is not reported for that group.
