GATE Placement Criteria
Students may qualify for placement into the CUSD GATE program by scoring 95% or above on the OLSAT or NNAT assessment.
If there is space available, students who meet the criteria for High Achievers in accelerated classes are placed in middle school accelerated English and social science classes.
The Capistrano Unified School District does not accept outside private assessment results. Our identification process is systematic to allow for equitable access and standardization of identification.
