GATE (Gifted And Talented Education)

  • The Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District is committed to the belief that all students should be given the opportunity to develop to their full potential. The goal of the GATE program is to provide for rigorous and challenging learning experiences, which include ongoing opportunities for critical and creative thinking, problem solving, and questioning. All goals are interwoven with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in acceleration, depth, complexity, and novelty. In addition, the program design supports instructional strategies to accommodate student differences and support student collaboration, self-evaluation, and reflection.

  • The GATE testing window will be in early December.  All second-grade students across the district will be GATE tested in the 21/22 school year. The last day to "request to test" for grades 3-7 is October 22nd.
