Welcome to GATE

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) provides qualitatively differentiated learning experiences for students with unique abilities, interests and talents with the expectation that students will be successful learners capable of performing at high levels of ability. Research has shown that specialized instructional strategies, along with opportunities for gifted students to interact with each other on a regular basis, yield higher academic performance, as well as improved social and emotional well-being.

Do you have a newly identified GATE student and wonder what this new world is all about? Our New GATE Parent Webinar and presentation slides can help. If you have any questions, please email Stefanie Caswell.

Dr. Miller's presentation on Executive Functioning provides insight into what it is and discusses strategies to help strengthen your student's Executive Functioning. Presentation slides in English and Spanish are also available.
