Students will take the test at D39C on one of the following school days:
Jan 17, 18 or 19.
A testing schedule with grade levels will be posted closer to January.
It’s important to remember that D39C does not have a traditional GATE program. We offer differentiated educational courses that provide advanced and accelerated development via classroom learning activities, Explorations and Deep Dive classes on a regular basis to all our students.
If children become GATE identified at D39C, it will not affect their schedule. They will participate as all students do, in classes that provide an opportunity to meet their potential.
So why have students take the GATE test at D39C? Parents choose to have their children do this for personal reasons. If a "GATE identified child" transfers to another Poway school, the identification remains with the child until the 8th grade. There are no GATE programs in high school, since AP classes offered.
