Elementary GATE Pull-Out Program

Dear Families,
Welcome to the LCUSD Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Elementary Program. GATE-identified students in 4th-6th grade are pulled out of a non-academic part of their school day to attend this weekly 45-minute enrichment class. For the 2022-2023 school year, the program is expected to take place in person, depending on LACDPH guidelines for maintaining safe and stable cohorts of students. All lessons are standards-aligned and include the elements of a differentiated GATE curriculum: acceleration, depth, complexity, and novelty. 
Thank you for your interest and participation,
Danielle Celestino
