The Robla School District Gifted and Talented Education (G.A.T.E.) serves students in grades 3-6 in two self-contained classes. The 3-4 grade and 5-6 grade classrooms are currently being housed at Main Ave. Elementary School. There are a couple of ways a student may be identified for the G.A.T.E. program: all 2nd grade students are given a non-verbal standardized assessment to determine aptitude for the program (NNAT3); a teacher can refer a student for potential G.A.T.E. placement; a parent may ask for their child to be considered; and the results of the California Standardized Assessment for ELA and math may be reviewed. All potential G.A.T.E. candidate's data is entered into a matrix and the students are ranked according to those results.
