In additional to these requirements, students who are applying for the Gifted and Talented Magnet Program also must score at least a 24 on the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT), which is used for Advance Program placement.  Those who meet this minimum criteria will be ranked-ordered, based on the criteria and program capacities.  Meeting minimum criteria does not guarantee acceptance due to space issues.

Students who are interested in applying to Noe must complete the optional programs and magnet programs and schools applications form online at 

The school will review the student’s attendance records, grades, behavior, and test scores.  Parents of non-JCPS students will need to provide grades, attendance records, and test scores.
