    The Glendale Unified School District offers a Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program for eligible students in grades 4-12. The programs are designed to meet the needs of high ability and intellectually gifted students. Classroom instruction begins with the grade level core curriculum and is differentiated based upon student need and ability. 

    Community and business partnerships have been established to support the district GATE activities. For more information visit the district's GATE website.

    Identification of Students

    4th-6th grade students will be eligible to take the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) in the fall (subject to change) if they meet the criteria in English language arts/literacy (ELA) or mathematics on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Students scoring at the 92nd percentile or higher on the OLSAT will be identified to participate in the GATE Program.
