Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)



What is a Gifted and Talented Student?


The Paramount Unified School District identifies students who demonstrate the potential for performing above grade level academically and/or evidence the capacity for critical and higher-level thinking or creative abilities. Students are identified for the GATE program beginning in second grade.


GATE students are provided with the opportunity to participate in enrichment activities at each school site. Please contact your child’s school for more information about programs at the site.
