At Summit Intermediate, our goal is to encourage both highly motivated and
academically gifted students the opportunity to pursue rigorous coursework.
If students are GATE/Advanced they are enrolled in a classroom that has
an “Advanced” cluster (GATE Cluster, etc). Students are challenged through
the teacher utilizing differentiated instruction techniques. In addition to
being in a “cluster classroom”, GATE identified students have a designated
instructional period (Xtime) each day for further enrichment opportunities.
Our programs are designed to serve the needs of our
advanced students through advanced learning opportunities that challenge the
student with curriculum different in depth, complexity and pacing.
