WELCOME!
 
The LUSD GATE nomination window is closed for 2019-2020
 

Children are identified gifted when their ability is significantly above the norm for their age. Giftedness may manifest in one or more domains such as; intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership, or in a specific academic field such as language arts, mathematics or science.

GATE Classes
Lammersville Unified School District offers after school GATE Enrichment classes (5th-8th grades) and teacher support to differentiate in the classroom. Last GATE class for 2018-19 is April 29.
Each site also has extra-curricular clubs and activities that provide enrichment opportunities for all students.  We encourage all students to participate in these opportunities.
In high school, high achieving students are encouraged to enroll in Honors classes, AP coursework, and perhaps the Early College program.
IDENTIFICATION
It is important to note that not all gifted children look or act alike. Giftedness exists in every demographic group and personality type. It is important that adults look hard to discover potential and support gifted children as they reach for their personal best. This is why we use a combination of assessments, work samples, parent and teacher observations to compile a portfolio to discover and support gifted students.
