GATE Program

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

Welcome to the MUSD GATE page!


Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) provides a flexible system of program options that deliver a continuum of appropriate curricular and instructional experiences to its identified Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) students, K-12. The GATE program is site-based. Each site develops a school plan that integrates the needs of the GATE students into its overall educational program. Based upon an analysis of the needs of identified GATE students, the number and distribution of these students by grade level, and the structure of the school day at the site, schools may provide different delivery systems.


MUSD offers a variety of program modifications that are particularly designed to meet the needs of gifted and talented students. Instructional strategies accommodate different learning styles, support collaboration, and promote self-reflection. Differentiation of course content is achieved through added depth, complexity, novelty, or acceleration of pace. Interdisciplinary, student-centered curriculum featuring hands-on, collaborative learning activities with real-world applications increase the power and relevance of learning for students.
