GATE Gifted and Talented Education

Meeting the Needs of all Students

The Culver City Unified School District (CCUSD) strives to meet the needs of all students. GATE and high achieving students are served through a number of delivery models and settings. Beginning in middle school, student have the opportunity to participate in Scholars (for English Language Arts) and accelerate through compacted curriculum (mathematics). It is important to note that while GATE participation Is one of the criteria that could potentially identify secondary students in honors or accelerated courses, it is not the only or most important criteria. Classroom achievement in middle school is a strong indicator of success in high school honors and advanced placement courses.
