VUSD GATE Program

What is GATE?

GATE stands for Gifted and Talented Education. The Mission of the GATE program is to provide an enriched and differentiated curriculum and appropriate learning experiences for identified gifted and talented students. Standards-based curriculum supported with the elements of depth, complexity, novelty and acceleration ensure that students are provided with challenging learning experiences. Through a differentiated approach, students will develop their intellectual, emotional, creative and social gifts to the fullest.

The focus of our elementary GATE services starts in the regular classroom. The elementary GATE Program at VUSD is implemented in the form of cluster groupings and enrichment activities. Cluster groupings are groups of identified GATE students within a regular classroom. Gifted students will be offered challenging & enriching activities commensurate with their abilities by their classroom teacher. Enrichment programs occur after the school day and on weekends.
