April Lane Elementary has an active Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program
 
GATE is the program for students who have been identified as Gifted and Talented. Identification is determined by a combination of Standardized Test Scores, Specialized Tests administered by the School Psychologist, and Teacher recommendation.

The GATE Program offers opportunities for these students to go beyond their regular classroom assignments and curriculum to explore areas such as science, art, literature, technology and much more in both fun and creative ways.
 
Some of the GATE classes offered in the past few years include:
  • School Newspaper
  • Computer Club
  • Science Club
  • Yearbook
