GATE (Gifted and Talented Education)

Welcome to the

Greenfield Union School District G.A.T.E Program


This program will empower students to become self-directed leaders with critical and creative thinking skills.  The program focus is the development of communication and collaboration skills, creative problem solving strategies, individual talents and a love of learning.


Our program was established to meet the needs of Greenfield students with exceptionally high intellectual ability and academic achievement. We believe that gifted students need the opportunity to participate in an exciting and challenging program of differentiated instruction, centered on the core curriculum and the individual needs of each student within the context of the regular school day.
