Total grouping for the attention of students with high abilities has had a positive impact both academically, socially, emotionally and creatively. There has been much discussion as to whether creativity differs according to gender; however, the results of various studies have been contradictory.A pre-experimental study was carried out with the participation of 21 females and 37 males with high abilities who attended from fourth to sixth grade of elementary school in a school by total grouping. The Creative Imagination Test for Children (PIC-N) was administered at the beginning and end of the school year. The results show the importance of working on creativity with these students within the curriculum. The absence of differences between sexes agrees with the results obtained in previous studies.
