GATE Information

Gifted & Talented Education (GATE) Programs


The GATE program supports high-achieving and underachieving pupils who are identified as gifted and talented. By state definition, gifted students are pupils who possess a capacity for excellence far beyond that of their chronological peers. This capacity includes many and varied characteristics that require modifications of curriculum and instruction. These modifications form the basis of gifted and talented educational services.
Our GATE students are identified at the end of second grade through district assessments.  GATE identified students in grades 3-5 are then placed with GATE certified teacher.
