Welcome to the GATE page! 

We hope you enjoy perusing the site and return frequently for updates.  The GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program for Cañon City Schools provides programs and programming for academic and arts identified GATE students.

At the elementary level, GATE students benefit from GATE pull out classes which center around critical thinking, creative problem solving, leadership, and social/emotional development.

Gifted services at the middle school occur during the regular school day through advanced classes and content extensions. Additional activities available to middle school GATE students are Math Counts, Knowledge Bowl, Geography Bee, and Spelling Bee.

Programs at the high school include: Honors classes, Advanced Placement Classes, Advanced level subject classes, and/or ability grouping. The Advanced Placement classes for 2013-2014 include Art History, Biology, Statistics, Calculus, Computer Science, Psychology, and Chemistry.

Other extended activities for GATE students include school and district science fairs and SPLASH (Summer Program Learning for Advanced Students) summer school held in June!

GATE students say:

GATE takes you out of the regular classroom and encourages you to be who you really are.

GATE stretches your thinking. GATE is fun!

GATE makes you think about your thinking while you’re upsidedown chewing bubble gum! WHEW!
