Gifted Services (GATE)

Welcome to Gifted Services! 

Students in the Rochester Public Elementary Schools may qualify for Gifted and Talented Services based on the scores achieved on a combination of two identification tests, the Cognitive Abilities Test (CoGAT) and the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Assessment. These tests assist the district with identification of students with gifted aptitudes in verbal or non-verbal courses of study. Verbal classes will incorporate reading and social studies standards. Non-verbal classes will incorporate mathematics and science standards. If students achieve a combined ranking on performance measures, then they will be formally identified to receive gifted services in Rochester Public Schools.
