Westmore Oaks K-8 is the home of the GATE program for the district.
The programs spans across five grade levels, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth. The program is self-contained in grades four and five. In grade six, seven and eight, the students have GATE classes in all core areas such as English, Math, Science and Social Science. Students work at a much faster pace than the regular education students. The teaching is based on more group discussion and discovery. Students in GATE classes do not get more homework but are grouped in classes with students who are high functioning and need to be challenged.
Please feel free to look at the GATE articles that are attached in the locker on this page!
