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.

At Myers-Ganoung we offer two GATE Services:

GATE Cluster Services
Gifted instruction provided in grade levels 1st -5th. Identified GATE students are “clustered” in open access classrooms with a GATE endorsed teacher.

1-5 Grade GATE Pull-Out Services are offered in all elementary schools district-wide. GATE itinerant teachers are assigned to each elementary. Pull-out itinerant GATE services are 90 minute per week and provide enriched instruction in small group settings.
