Derry school district continues to push its high-achieving students
Originally, the program for gifted students was called GATE, for Guided Advanced Instruction to Exceptional Students, according to Serena Levine, the district’s director of supplemental services. That program then evolved into PACE, or the Program for Acceleration and Curriculum Enhancement.
The program is not strictly for gifted students, but also for high-achievers who might not be challenged by the standard classroom curriculum, particularly in math and language arts.
“The students are passionate about reading and writing,” said Levine. “They are ready as a group to tackle abstract concepts in literature together.”
Levine said there is a less formal approach to accelerated language arts at that level.
