The GATE Program at Sakamoto provides after-school workshops and activities to nearly 100 of our fourth through sixth grade students who have been identified through testing (scoring in the 98th percentile or above) as "Gifted and Talented".


In the Spring of 2016, parent volunteers organized geocashing, a four-part series of art lessons, a journalism workshop, two star gazing parties, a series of chemistry workshops, and four field trips -  for a total of 16 dynamic activities, all designed to provide hands-on enrichment to students with a variety of interests. The GATE program will be expanding this school year to include additional science-based workshops, Lego Robotics, arts & crafts projects and much more!
