Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)
Redwood City School District's (RCSD) Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program offers students an opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, and academically with other identified GATE students. Projects, field trips, and grade level standards-based enrichment opportunities are included in the curriculum.
GATE is a pull out program and students attend approximately 1-2x per month for the full school day.
RCSD tests current 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders for possible participation in GATE. The program is available for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students.
The GATE Program is housed at Clifford School and Hoover Community School. Students do not need to attend Clifford or Hoover to attend the GATE program.
Testing takes place in April and May at school sites.
