The Oceanside Unified School District is committed to providing Gifted and Talented Education programs which serve students according to their identified unique capabilities and needs. It is the district's intent that the programs, while creating academic rigor throughout the schools, serve both high-achieving and at-risk gifted and talented students, serve populations which reflect the community, and focus on exceptionality.
The goals of the Oceanside Unified School District's Gifted and Talented Program are to meet students’ intellectual needs, to motivate students to reach their highest potential, to increase the application of critical thinking skills and promote positive social-emotional skills, and to increase annually the number of underrepresented students identified for the GATE Program.
It is our hope that this website can further promote these philosophies and goals with added communication regarding teacher and parent opportunities.
