GATE Preparation

July 1, 2019

The GATE program or the gifted and talented program offers an education that is at a higher level; including access to a fast-paced rigorous curriculum. To enter into the GATE program, students must take a test at their school and pass by districts standards. If they pass, the student will be allowed to join the GATE program in their district. Here at Optimus, we will prepare your child for the GATE test with a 10-week program. This program allows them to make for the questions that will be on the district given GATE test. The program will be tailored depending on what school district your child is in.
