Beryl Heights offers a comprehensive GATE program in grades 3 - 5 in accordance with Redondo Beach Unified School District's GATE plan. Students are identified starting in the second grade, using the OLSAT/NNAT assessment and California Standards test scores. To qualify for the GATE program, a student needs to achieve:

A percentile score of 95 or higher on a single administration of the Otis Lennon Ability Test (OLSAT) or for English Language Learners, the Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test (NNAT). OLSAT and NNAT testing occurs in the spring of each school year.

The GATE program is integrated into the third-fifth grade classrooms through differentiation. Students have opportunities to further advance their thinking skills and knowledge on a daily basis. In addition, Redondo Beach Unified School District has sponsored an after school enrichment course to complement the classroom learning. As students progress through the Redondo Beach Unified School District, they will continue to have access to GATE services. Please visit the district's GATE web page for additional information: .
