Gravette School District

The Pride of Arkansas

  •  GATE Philosophy

    The gifted and talented program in the Gravette Public Schools is built on a fundamental belief in serving the needs of all our students as unique individuals. We believe that gifted and talented individuals have special characteristics and learning styles, and that their potential for accomplishment is such that they require special provisions, experiences, and services not provided for in the regular instructional program.

    We are committed to providing a program for identifying and meeting the needs and interests of our gifted students. The identification and placement of these gifted and talented students will be based on documented objective and subjective evidence of above average ability, creative thinking, and task commitment.



    On Saturday, Feb. 6th, Seventh graders Lorelei Kellhofer,
