Project GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) classes provide a differentiated, academically appropriate learning environment where high-ability children can maximize their potential in reading and mathematics. Project GATE curriculum includes reading and math instruction as well as thinking skills curricular studies, including:

  • Critical thinking
  • Logic
  • Visual/spatial perception
  • Creativity
  • Social and emotional skills
  • Work habits

First grade classes follow a similar structure in content and thinking, though are flexible and less formal. First graders may attend classes for one or more trimesters.

Please contact me for more information about second grade GATE reading and GATE math classes, as well as alternate academic opportunities for first grade students.

Please view classroom pages for the latest news and assignments for current students.
