Opportunities For Everyone
Gifted and Talented Education
Lake Geneva Jt. #1 School District
(262) 348-4000 ext. #4060

Lake Geneva Schools Team for Gifted and Talented Education (GaTE) recognizes that a great diversity exists among our learners. Our GaTE Program has its foundation within the classroom. All of our students are expected to receive instruction that helps each child work toward his or her next level of challenge in all subject areas. Gifted students learn at a different pace and at a different depth from other students. To meet these needs teachers use differentiation as a tool to meet varying student needs. Differentiation may include acceleration of a subject area through Advanced Placement courses, honors classes, compacting units of study, tiered assignments in the classroom, grade acceleration for a certain subject, working in a cluster of students with the same high level of instructional needs, or intervention group work. In most cases differentiation strategies are integrated daily throughout the curricular areas rather than occurring as special events.
