GIFTED AND TALENTED EDUCATION (GATE) IN THE SAN MATEO - FOSTER City School District
(updated information as of November 23, 2020)
The SMFC School District offers a self-contained GATE class in grades 4-5 at College Park Elementary School and grades 6-8 at Bayside Academy. Historically students in grades 3 and 5 are offered an assessment in December to check for eligibility to the program. Because of the current situation with Distance Learning we are unable to offer a secure and valid GATE assessment in December that ensures the safety of our students and staff.
An email will be sent to all 3rd and 5th grade families as soon as next steps are determined.
