San Antonio, Texas 78210
The mission of the San Antonio Independent School District’s Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Department is to transform potential in youth into outstanding achievement in adulthood. The district is committed to identifying and nurturing individual strengths in order to cultivate the unique intellectual and academic gifts and talents of our students.
Through the use of 21st century learning tools, collaboration with classroom teachers, and student and parent involvement, we will foster the development of engaged, self-motivated, learners and leaders who will be college and career ready while demonstrating skills in self-directed learning, critical thinking, research, and communication. GATE students will develop innovative products and performances that will reflect individuality and creativity and be presented to an audience outside the classroom.
