GATE Program

Students are identified as GATE (Gifted and Talented) at the beginning of grade 4.  


A differentiated curriculum model is in place for all students. Poinsettia offers Art, Science, Music, and PE as enrichment programs.  PTA also funds multiple field trips for all grade levels to provide a rich curriculum for all learners.

GATE Program Mission Statement

The Carlsbad Unified School District encourages gifted and talented students to maximize their potential by reaching extraordinary heights and by internalizing highly effective life skills. The gifted program includes a well-defined advanced level curriculum delivered by exceptional teachers who artfully and explicitly connect this high level curriculum with the readiness, interest and learning profiles of students.
