GATE Screening and Identification
Beginning in the third grade, teachers identify students who have exhibited characteristics of a gifted student. A screening process done by the site GATE Committee determines eligibility. This process includes screening surveys completed by teachers and parents, student work samples and student assessments. Identified students receive differentiated instruction in the classroom. This work often consists of group projects designed to teach leadership, cooperative learning, and higher level thinking skills.
