The Newport Mesa Unified School District offers a Gifted and Talented Education Program for eligible students in grades 4 – 12. The programs are designed to meet the needs of high ability and intellectually gifted students. Classroom instruction begins with the grade level core curriculum and is differentiated based upon student need and ability. The development of critical thinking is emphasized.
When participating in a differentiated curriculum, bright, talented students will become analytical thinkers, creative producers, and practical problem solvers. It is our goal to provide unique learning opportunities for the gifted learner to develop individual potential, explore interests, and develop sensitivity and responsibility, ethical standards, and a healthy realistic self-concept.
GATE operations and student placement differ slightly at each school site within NMUSD.
Please contact your GATE Coordinator or Principal for more information about your school's GATE program.
