Registration open for middle school students planning to take GATE entrance exam


Registration is now open for current seventh-graders planning to take the optional Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, or OLSAT, in July.

The OLSAT helps identify students for the district’s GATE program, and IUSD will administer the test at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 16 at Vista Verde School.

Students who score at the 95th percentile or higher on the OLSAT can qualify for IUSD’s Gifted and Talented Education program, though that’s not the only way to be identified for GATE enrollment. Alternative identification methods can be found here on the district’s website.

Again, the OLSAT is optional. To sign your child up for this exam, click here and submit your online registration form by the July 1 deadline.
