GATE Program

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program supports unique opportunities for high-achieving and underachievingCropped Maria pupils who are identified as gifted and talented. By state definition, gifted students are pupils who possess a capacity for excellence far beyond that of their chronological peers. This capacity includes many and varied characteristics that require modifications of curriculum and instruction. These modifications form the basis of gifted and talented educational services.

The San Diego Unified School District serves the gifted students within the district through two options:

  1. The Seminar program for the highly gifted and,

  2. The Cluster program for gifted and high ability students.

San Diego Unified School District is committed to a school environment that fosters achievement and the realization of each student's potential. This belief in the possibility of individual excellence and unique achievement and belief in the school's responsibility for fostering both is the basis of the GATE program.

For more information on parent and student opportunities, please visit the district's GATE website.
