4th Graders are tested for GATE in October of each year. Students who have unusually high academic abilities, leadership abilities, visual and performing art abilities, and creativity, are assessed. Students who qualify are offered a few opportunities each year outside of the classroom to enrich their skills. Most of the instruction for GATE students comes through differentiated instruction from their classroom teacher. In addition, students are encouraged to participate in the Science Fair, Spelling bee and 5th grade math competition.
Each year the offering for GATE student vary, as classes are dependent on the interests of parents and community members who are willing to volunteer their time for our students.
