Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Grades 3-5 only


Students in grades 3 through 5 are identified for the GATE program based upon their intellectual ability, test performance, teacher evaluation, and parent/student surveys as outlined by State and District guidelines. Classroom teachers provide an on-going enrichment program for high-achieving students through differentiated instruction, thus encouraging students to develop to their fullest potential. GATE students are clustered and given specific instruction based on their needs. A supplemental class may be offered for GATE and high-achieving students, pending funding. Notification of class dates and times will be sent home.
