2023-2024 School Year
GATE eligibility is required prior to submitting an application.
Standard placement in the Magnet Program is offered to GATE students entering 6th or 7th grade. Current Magnet students will be asked to submit a Recommit Form rather than submit a new application. Current Magnet students who recommit to the program will receive priority registration over new incoming students. For more information, view our Magnet FAQ Page

- Magnet applications are closed for the 2023-2024 school year. If you are still interested in the Magnet program, please contact Dr. Michael Perrin at MPerrin@washoeschools.net
- Returning SWAS students have received commitment forms for next year to reserve their spot in the program. Incoming 3rd grade students new to the program have received invitations to apply to the program. We are continuing the process of determining who is eligible for 3rd, 4th and 5th grades for the SWAS program.
The SWAS Program is designed for students in grades 3-5 who have been identified as gifted and have demonstrated they are high-achieving. There are three elementary school SWAS sites; Caughlin Ranch, Florence Drake, and Ted Hunsberger Elementary schools. These classrooms serve the entire school district for any student that qualifies and is accepted for this program. For more information, view our SWAS FAQ Page.
The GATE Institute is a partnership between the GATE Program and Procter Hug High. With GATE endorsed teachers, identified GATE students in 9th through 12th grades can expect to take classes based on interests, strengths, and readiness. GATE Institute Application 2023-2024
