GATE Testing


Upcoming Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) TESTING REGISTRATION ends November 30, 2017. Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) involves services for students whose cognitive needs may require modified classroom curriculum and instruction to accommodate their learning differences and ensure their achievement. Parents may request GATE testing for students in grades 2-7. 


The purpose of the GATE services in the Poway Unified School District is to identify and motivate highly able students to realize their full potential. Gifted students are higher level thinkers who demonstrate depth, originality, and creativity in their thoughts. GATE students have common characteristics but often unique needs. In order to meet the needs of GATE students all day, classroom teachers differentiate the curriculum as needed. Differentiated instruction is individualized based on what the student is showing in class.
