GATE Program

    An integral part of the success of Brentwood Science Magnet Elementary School is the differentiated instruction for students who have demonstrated high intellectual ability, academic achievement, and/or artistic talent through particular criteria. Gifted and talented students are clustered in classrooms with specially trained teachers who teach in a way that gives them ample opportunity to fulfill their potential. Because these students generally demonstrate high performance or capacity for high performance beyond age/grade expectations, they are atypical learners who require specialized learning experiences beyond the regular curriculum. 

    Brentwood students enrolled in the GATE program enjoy additional educational opportunities, such as 

  • field trips, 
  • lunch time enrichment activities through Parker-Anderson and with teachers, 
  • and multiple venues in which student talent and gifts are showcased and encouraged.
