Our Gifted and Talented Education program serves students beginning in the 3rd grade and up to students in the 8th grade.  Students are identified using an assessment that is administered to students in the 3rd grade.
If teachers recognize a student's special abilities, they may recommend the student to be considered for the program.  
If parents wish their child to be considered for the program, their first step is to express this request to their child's teacher.
Our program is project based.  Students attend once a week after school.  Transportation is available.  Our program begins in October.   
If you would like more information regarding our GATE program please contact Mr. Loren Nikkel at
