Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program works to ensure that students who demonstrate outstanding ability or potential are helped to make the most of their unique talents and capabilities.

The GATE program provides differentiated instruction to students with exceptional intellectual ability, high achievement ability, specific academic ability, leadership, creativity, and visual and performing arts abilities. Instructional programs are planned and organized as an integrated experience throughout the regular school day, supplemented with other differentiated activities related to the core curriculum.
