Mary Ellen Cunningham Elementary School

Gifted and Talented Program

Cunningham’s robust Gifted and Talented Program is designed to challenge students that are identified as "Gifted and Talented" (GT).  GT students are clustered in classrooms with GT certified teachers and engage in project-based learning throughout the school year. For the 2020-21 school year, all teachers on our campus will be GT Certified. 

For more information about Austin ISD's GT (or GATE Program), visit the Advanced Academics page on the main AISD website. 

We will have two Principal Coffee Talks that focus on the GT Identification process.  

Nomination periods for GATE are:

  • October (3-5)

  • January (K- 2)
