Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)
The San Diego Unified School District serves the gifted students within the district through two options:
1. The Seminar program for the highly gifted and,
2. The Cluster program for gifted and high ability students.
San Diego Unified School District is committed to a school environment that fosters achievement and the realization of each student's potential. This belief in the possibility of individual excellence and unique achievement and belief in the school's responsibility for fostering both is the basis of the GATE program.
