Toluca Lake's Gifted Program on the Rise


Congratulations to our many students in the GATE program.  8.6% of our Toluca Lake Elementary  students are identified gifted!!!  (The district's goal is 6%.)  This percentage includes all students from pre-kindergarten [age 4] through fifth grade, however, students aren't typically assessed until 6 years 9 months old or older.)
Great job Toluca Lake teachers for advancing our students to new heights!
