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.
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.
