Gifted and Talented Education
The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program provides unique education opportunities for high-achieving and underachieving students who have been identified as gifted and talented. GATE students at Maple are clustered in one class by grade-level, facilitating differentiated instruction and dynamic interaction among students. Focus is placed on the development of critical thinking skills and problem solving activities.
Maple holds GATE parent meeting two to three times per school year. Additionally, CVUSD has a GATE District Advisory Committee that meets once a month to discuss program goals and needs. A parent representative from Maple attends these meetings and brings back information to share with Maple parents. Maple also has a teacher who serves as GATE coordinator, who attends monthly meetings, shares information with the staff, and helps coordinate the GATE parent meetings.
Talk to your child's teacher if you are interested in having your child tested for the GATE program. Parent permission to participate is on file in the front office. Once students are identified, they remain part of the GATE program.
For more information, please contact or stop by the school, or visit the CVUSD GATE webpage.
