We are excited to announce the new brand of our TUSD Gate Program: Genius Hour Passion Projects. Our GATE Program will be centered on the Genius Hour model in which Gate classes and/or students identify passion projects to develop expertise. In addition, our GATE team is collaborating on using the GATE icons for depth and complexity to increase Rigor, Relevance, and Relationship. See our District Gate Program web page for more information on TUSD GATE Program. 



We have cancelled the GATE Spring Showcase.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you.
