GATE Program

imgres10Gifted and Talented Education

It is the mission of the Dixie School District to provide a kindergarten through eighth grade system of education which will graduate students with the necessary skills, knowledge, and attitudes to live rewarding and productive lives in a rapidly changing world.

We are committed to a school environment that fosters excellence and the achievement of one’s potential. It is this belief in the possibility of individual excellence and unique achievement – and the school’s responsibility for fostering both – that is the basis of Dixie School District's GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program.

The Dixie School District provides Gifted and Talented Education that is designed to meet the needs and learning styles unique to gifted children. This program includes differentiated curriculum within the regular classroom as well as after school instructional activities during the school year. 

O.L.S.A.T (Gate Eligibility) Testing


The District will be offering GATE eligibility testing this spring to all interested 3rd-8th grade students. The specific site schedules are to be determined. If you would like your child tested, please pick up a permission form from the school office or download it from the links below. Completed forms can be returned to your child's school, the District office (380 Nova Albion Way) or by email to Magan Kleinman (This email address is being protected from spambots.
