Gifted And Talented Education (GATE)

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. In the Redlands Unified School District, students are identified for the GATE program beginning at the end of third grade. Students are served in the GATE program from third grade through twelfth grade. Students who qualify for the GATE program are tested in the 3rd grade and are placed in cluster classes for the 4th and 5th grades, with certified GATE teachers. In addition, they may participate in some after-school enrichment GATE activities as they are available.  Angela Merideth is our site coordinator.  Assessment usually takes place after winter break. 

In Redlands, students are assessed in three areas:  

  • Ability -What is their potential? 

  • Achievement - What is their performance?  

  • Characteristic Behaviors - What personality and character traits do they have that match them to gifted students?

Information about qualifications for GATE and testing can be found on the district website HERE.
