High-ability is an umbrella term used to describe high potential and/or performance. High-ability students have abilities that are more advanced than those of a similar age.
Some high-ability students have a general aptitude that allows them to achieve across a wide range of subjects. Others may exhibit subject specific aptitude. The ability, aptitude and performance of high-ability students will vary. Students with high-ability may also have a disability.
