Advanced Learner Education

Advanced Learner Education



A differentiated curriculum model is in place for all students at the elementary, middle, and secondary levels. GATE focuses on the advanced level component of the general education curriculum and is delivered during the regular school day.

We recognize that gifted students have special talents that must be nurtured, as well as unique needs that must be addressed through accommodations such as differentiation of content, instruction, and assessment, as well as through careful attention to their social-emotional development. By considering the whole child, and not just his or her innate abilities, teachers, parents, and administrators will be able to challenge and motivate gifted students to reach for the stars and achieve at their full potential.
