Niguel Hills Middle School Reviews
The GATE program is lacking. Intelligence as measured by I.A. testing should be the criteria for entering such a program. You don't teach GATE children by piling on extra work and making rigid compliance to useless tasks. The subject matter should be more interesting and taken to a more abstract level. You would think the classes would foster imaginative thinking and a positive teacher attitude. Instead, the foremat is more like the army with drill sargeant in charge.
