Welcome to Gifted & Talented Education
The Redlands Unified School District offers a Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program designed to provide qualitatively different instructional strategies for students who demonstrate the intellectual capacity that places them among the top three to five percent of students nationwide.
GATE Program Mission Statement
We, the Governing Board, teachers, support staff, and administrators of the Redlands Unified School District, believe that students with high ability and talents should be nurtured and encouraged throughout their educational careers. We further believe that in order to meet the needs of our gifted and talented students, programs must be established at all schools to permit these students to work together, under the guidance of trained teachers, in an atmosphere that is academically rigorous. The core curriculum is the foundation for the differentiated instruction and methodologies used. Students will be permitted to work at an accelerated pace, deal with complex, in-depth subject matter, and demonstrate their talents in creative and unique ways. Finally, we believe that gifted education should be an integral part of every school day for every gifted child.
