Gifted and Talented Education (G.A.T.E.) 


What is GATE?

Gifted and Talented Education, otherwise known as the GATE program, provides differentiated curriculum and instructional services to students who are identified as having abilities and/or potential for high performance.

The mission of the Roseville City School District’s Gifted and Talented Education Program is to identify and serve identified gifted students from all represented groups in the District. Through highly motivating self-contained classrooms and appropriate placement in classroom clusters, we provide instruction rich in learning opportunities based on grade level standards extended by depth, complexity and acceleration. It is the goal of this program to provide all students we serve with the tools necessary to reach their full academic and personal potential.

How are students identified as GATE?

Roseville City School District’s GATE identification process is based on the Otis Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT).  The OLSAT measures verbal comprehension, verbal reasoning, pictorial reasoning, figural reasoning, and quantitative reasoning and is used as one measurement to assess student GATE candidacy.

What services to GATE students receive?

Students receiving GATE services are provided a differentiated curriculum that may include extension activities, advanced literature review, independent investigations, enrichment support, and project development. Multiple opportunities are provided for acceleration, depth, and complexity in the core subject areas.

Currently our GATE students have the opportunity to participate in various community and after school enrichment classes.  Some of the classes available include:

  • Partnership with ReCreate to provide after school opportunities at various school sites throughout the 2017-18 school year.
*These classes focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) related content and enrichment.
