SRES Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

GATE coordinator: Mrs. Jin Hong - jhong@powayusd.com 

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. Some techniques utilized in the classrooms at Stone Ranch Elementary are cluster grouping, varying the pace of instruction, compacting the curriculum, higher level questioning, and activities that are open ended.

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.
