Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

Purpose:  Gifted/Talented Programs create high-end learning opportunities which allow students to flourish in stimulating academic and social environments. In designing challenging educational opportunities, we strive to raise the floor, remove the walls and eliminate the ceiling on learning. Ceilings are for rooms not students.

Philosophy:  The philosophy of Gifted/Talented Programs is integrally connected to the District mission statement. The District’s instructional programs for gifted and talented students are based on the principles that all students are to receive an education appropriate to their individual capabilities, interests, and needs, and that students have learning opportunities that help develop their abilities to the highest level. Because gifted and talented students generally demonstrate high performance or capacity for high performance beyond age/grade expectations, they are atypical learners who require specialized learning experiences beyond the regular curriculum.

District Mission Statement:  The teachers, administrators and staff of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) believe in the equal worth and dignity of all students and are committed to educate all students to their maximum potential.
