The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program for fourth and fifth grade students expands into middle school. Sixth graders enrolled in GATE at Stillwater Middle School are clustered together in houses, and are intermixed with the rest of the middle school. Specialized GATE classes in math, science, and language arts are available to our sixth grade students.
In addition, we’ve designed gifted and talented services for our 7th and 8th grade students. Much like sixth grade, our 7th and 8th students will be clustered for core classes, and a specialized “push-in or pull-out” math class taught by a GATE teacher will be provided to keep them on track with their individualized learning needs. They also will have an opportunity to test into honors English and advanced science.
Middle school students also have options to explore honors and accelerated courses in English, science and mathematics.
