Lyle S. Briggs' GATE ProgramThe Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) is committed to educational programs that recognize and serve students’ diverse needs and talents. The purpose of our Gifted and Talented Education Program (GATE) is to provide a stimulation environment with opportunities for capable students to achieve their highest potential. GATE identified students in graders 2nd-6th are placed in a GATE Cluster class at their grade level. All GATE students are expected to master the State Curriculum Standards, but the curriculum will be differentiated to provide challenging activities for them. Seventh – 8th grade GATE students are placed in GATE/HONOR classes for English Language Arts and Social Studies. There are no GATE classes for Math and Science. However, all teachers are required to provide enrichment activities for GATE students.
