Middle School Gifted and Talented (GATE) Classes

District Program GATE Identification Process and Timeline

Students in 7th and 8th grade are not included in the GATE identification process in the Sacramento City Unified School District. Students who are identified as GATE in grades second through sixth will continue to be identified as GATE students throughout their middle and high school years. These classes include GATE identified students as well as students who have demonstrated high achievement or high potential.

All Middle Schools offer GATE classes in the core subject areas: English/Language Arts, Science, and History. Students who are advanced in Mathematics are offered courses appropriate for their level to ensure academic and mental engagement.
