GATE Program

GATE Program

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.

About the Program

Students identified as gifted learners are placed in our Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program at each elementary and middle school. We group GATE students heterogeneously with other students for regular instruction, but our core curriculum provides enrichment opportunities that continually challenge GATE students inside the classroom. At the high school level, GATE students generally enroll in our many Honors and Advanced Placement courses.
