Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)
EESD's Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program is integrated into each classroom. Our teaching staff provides opportunities to develop and enhance creative thinking and problem-solving skills in all students. Students may work in teams to solve problems in a variety of areas, from building mechanical devices to giving their own interpretation of literary classics, or express themselves through art or music. Through these experiences, students learn life-long skills such as working with others, evaluating ideas, making decisions, and creating solutions while simultaneously building self-esteem and self-confidence.
