Gate Program at Sewell
Sewell Is a GATE Cluster School
Sewell is a proud GATE Cluster School where GATE qualifying and regular education students are in a mixed-ability classroom with a GATE endorsed teacher, or a teacher who is actively pursuing his/her gifted endorsement. Additionally, all of our teachers have committed to becoming GATE endorsed! Our program also consists of a 90-minute once a week GATE pull-out class for GATE qualifying students with our teacher, Ms. Lambert . This enrichment class focuses on critical thinking, creative thinking, and problem solving through high engagement, hands-on interdisciplinary units. Ms. Lambert also teaches talent development lessons to all kindergarten and first grade classes on an ongoing basis.
