Identification Process

Milpitas Unified School District identifies students for GATE through a separate GATE test.

To qualify for GATE, a student must meet the following criterion:  

  • Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT) performance of 96 percentile or higher. 

The NNAT is given to all third grade students, as well as to fourth through seventh graders new to MUSD. A student who did not qualify as GATE via the NNAT during the previous year may retake the test by teacher recommendation. A maximum of one retake in grades 4-7 is allowed. Parental or guardian permission is needed for testing.

Appeal Process 

The parents of the students who qualify for the MUSD GATE program are notified in writing. Parents have the right to appeal the identification decision. Appeals will be reviewed by the District GATE Administrator.
