Calgary Board of Education

Gifted and Talented Education Program (GATE)

GATE started at Hillhurst in September 1995 when the GATE program transferred over from Queen Elizabeth Elementary. Originally we had three classes of mixed grade 4,5,6 students. Today, the program consists of five classrooms: three grade 4&5 and two grade 6, that serve students from a variety of N.W. and N.E. Calgary communities. Our GATE team consists of five homeroom teachers and a 1.0 GATE strategist/learning support teacher who works with the GATE students in a variety of capacities.
