GATE is a club ran by Mrs. Shay, our high school mathematics teacher, who teaches algebra, pre-calculus, and calculus. It is also ran by Mrs. Shrader a middle school math teacher. The GATE club is used to enrich many students who excel in performance in the school setting, and it leads them to new opportunities and discoveries.

Recently the GATE club went on a trip to WVU to let their students to discover their options in post-secondary education. They also learned the advantages of going to WVU and other campuses they have around the state of West Virginia.

Students who qualify for gifted services are automatically in GATE. Students who do not qualify for gifted services must fill out an application. All applications are scored blind against a rubric, and the top scorers are admitted into the GATE program.
