Gifted Instructional Model @ VHE

  • At Virginia-Highland Elementary gifted students are served using the resource or pull-out model.  Gifted identified students receive one full-day of instruction weekly with their assigned GATE teacher. GATE instruction focuses on a semester-long theme that embeds GATE standards with grade level standards. At VHE many homeroom teachers are gifted endorsed. This means that students who are in the gifted program, as well as students who are not in the gifted program, have access to gifted-endorsed teachers and instructional strategies. Please visit the Atlanta Public Schools Gifted and Talented website for more information. You will find answers to frequently asked questions about how we identify, serve, enrich, and support gifted students.
