About GATE

At Tucson Unified, we recognize that gifted students have special educational needs that should be met within the context of educating the whole child through a variety of services and options. The role of the Gifted Education program is to:

  • Identify the particular abilities and needs of these students.
  • Challenge students functioning at the highest level of ability.
  • Encourage underachieving students who are capable of the highest performance.
  • Promote higher level creative and productive thinking skills throughout the district.
  • Promote creative or productive achievement.

The District is committed to providing all students enrolled at the District with equal access to the District’s Gifted and Talented Education program.
