Gifted and Talented Education

Our GATE program provides gifted and talented students within our schools with guidance and instruction to help meet their needs and encourage the development of creative and critical thinking skills. Each site within our district participates in this program to bring students:

  • Differentiated curriculum and instruction
  • Varied accelerated learning opportunities
  • Enrichment

We encourage parental involvement with this and all programs in our district. Each school site employs a parental GATE Committee to prepare and present services, activities, and evaluation for our GATE students. Please consider joining us for our next event.


Teacher nomination and assessment referral identifies students in grades 3-12 for the GATE program. Parents are also welcome to request a referral hearing to begin identification procedures for their children. We utilize identification instruments that will ensure all students have equal access to this program. We may include:

  • STAR data
  • Student portfolios
  • GPA data
  • Teacher/parent checklists
  • Standardized GATE testing (Raven Plus and PSAT)
