GIFTED AND TALENTED EDUCATION (GATE)
Meeting the needs of students is fundamental to the purpose of Laguna Beach Unified School District's GATE Program. Every child is unique and should receive an education appropriate to his/her needs and abilities. When a child embodies talents that could enhance his/her life and the life of the community, special care should be taken in planning and providing an education that will affirm and support those talents.
The GATE Program is available for 4th and 5th grade students. Qualification into the GATE program is primarily based on results from the GATE screening test given to third grade students. Students qualify by scoring at or above the 95th percentile on the National Percentile Ranking (NPR) Total Score. Click on the link below for more information and view the GATE Handbook.
