Webster's GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) program is designed to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of advanced learners. GATE serves students in grades 4-6, and meets on Thursdays from 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. in Room 29. This year GATE students will learn computer programming and engage in hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) activities.
