The philosophy of the GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program is to provide enriched and accelerated activities for students based upon individual abilities.
All students in grades four through eight have the opportunity to become an identified Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) student based on the approved identification criteria.

Advanced learners in kindergarten through third grade are supported through programs such as: Accelerated Reader, Mind Institute JiJi math program, Study Island, and differentiated instruction in the classroom.
