High School Model of Service
The GATE Institute is the partnership between the GATE Program and Procter Hug High. With GATE endorsed teachers, GATE specifically designed courses, accelerated pathways and flexible scheduling, identified GATE students in 9th through 12th grades can expect to take classes based on interests, strengths and readiness. Qualified students are invited to apply for admission. This model is enriching gifted students who are prepared for advanced coursework and acceleration.
- Students successfully completing this model are self-directed, autonomous learners who are 21st Century, college and career ready.
The GATE Advisory Model provides support for GATE high school students at their zoned schools. Both the GATE High School Program Coordinator and the GATE High School Counselor work directly with site administrators, counselors and teachers to provide advisement on course selections, dual-enrollment, and college and career readiness. Collaboration is offered to ensure differentiated instructional strategies for gifted learners are available to general education classrooms.
The High School Internship provides 11th and 12th grade students with an opportunity to work closely and shadow with an expert in a career field of their choice. Having the opportunity to participate in the High School Internship model provides experiences crucial for making informed choices when students apply to colleges, select majors, or ultimately choose their own career paths.
