Advanced Learning and Differentiation

IUSD's GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program is designed to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of advanced learners. Research tells us that gifted children demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude or achievement in one or more domains while possessing unique and diverse learning characteristics. They often have highly creative abilities, strong memories, and subtle or mature senses of humor. Some, but not all, gifted students love the learning process and crave knowledge and understanding across a broad spectrum of topics. IUSD's GATE program is committed to providing a comprehensive educational model that meets the diverse and varied needs of each gifted student. IUSD program options serve students in 4th through 8th grades and are grounded in current research and best practices in the field of gifted education.
