“The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”- Dr. Seuss

 
Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) in Sylvania Schools
Along with intervention for students with learning needs, the department also oversees and supports the Gifted and Talented Education Department (GATE). Currently, the GATE program services students in grades 4-8 through a challenging and rigorous curriculum geared to qualified students through intense cognitive and achievement testing.

 

Definition of Gifted Students: The state of Ohio defines a gifted student as one who performs or shows potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment. For some, their learning needs are not a good match to the standard curriculum. These students are found at all grades and in many different areas. The goal of identification is to locate these students so that, when necessary, adjustments can be made in their school program in order to match their needs.
