The Baldwin Park Unified School District's

Gifted and Talented Education program exists to provide:

  • GATE students with a culture of high expectations and academic rigor that will assist them in meeting their potential.


  • Parents of GATE students with information that will assist them in understanding and nurturing their GATE child.


  • Teachers of GATE students with the necessary knowledge to participate in identifying students with gifted and talented potential and to differentiate curriculum to meet their educational needs.



GATE Identification:


Baldwin Park Unified School District is deeply committed to meeting the needs of our gifted students. Students are placed into the GATE program using a thorough and thoughtful identification process that considers high academic achievement, intellectual capabilities, creative thinking, and leadership skills. This identification process typically begins at the end of a child's 2nd grade year.  Students who are identified as GATE will then participate in an Elementary GATE program at their school sight. Once students reach Middle School/ Jr. High, they will participate in a highly engaging project-based GATE program.  Every year in the September, we hold a GATE Parent Introduction Meeting to explain specific details of our program for the coming school year.
