You are invited to attend an information meeting about the Meadowbrook GATE program.  It will take place in the Meadowbrook library at 5:30 pm on Feb. 26th.  This is a half hour before the 5th grade parent information meeting takes place in the gym.  Please come and hear answers to questions like:

  • What is the difference between a Homogeneous GATE class, a GATE cluster class and an Advanced class?
  • What is the procedure to sign up for these classes?
  • Does the Academy hurt or help my child's chances for applying for an Advanced class?

Please come and hear about all Meadowbrook has to offer!
