Gifted & Talented Education (GATE)
The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program is to identify gifted and high achieving students, including those from diverse racial, socio-economic, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds, and to provide high quality differentiated instructional opportunities for learning that meet the needs of these students’ unique abilities.
The GATE testing window for the 2022-2023 school year will be March 13, 2023 - April 6, 2023. All 3rd grade students will be assessed for GATE.
The goal of the GATE Program is to provide differentiated learning opportunities during the regular school day for identified students. Differentiated instruction systematically incorporates thinking at deep and complex levels and helps students to develop a broad knowledge base. It also encourages the development of research skills and real-world products as learning outcomes. Differentiated instruction may also be delivered at a pace faster than normal. They are encouraged to become self-motivated, lifelong learners who are equipped to initiate, engage in, and reflect upon independent and group learning.
