Throughout the year, Yukon students may enroll in various after school enrichment programs offered on-site by a number of community organizations. These fee-based programs provide students the opportunity to explore areas of interest such as chess, drawing, sculpting, building, acting, engineering and others. Check back often for current programs. Enrollment information will be announced in the Yukon eBlast.
The GATE Program
Torrance Unified School District prides itself on academic excellence and the high achievement of our students. The goal of our GATE program is to identify students with exceptional abilities, well beyond grade or age expectations, and then establish how the child can receive both differentiated learning experiences within the classroom and enrichment opportunities outside of the classroom.
GATE testing of all 3rd grade students takes place in October. A letter with testing details and schedule is mailed to parents in September. No form or application for participation in third grade GATE testing is necessary. If you do NOT wish your student to be tested for GATE eligibility, you will need to complete and sign the opt-out form in the fall.
