At GATE Academy, the school day starts with 70+ minutes of mathematics instruction. Each student progresses at their own rate through a curriculum with a standard scope and sequence. Individualized instruction allows every student to reach their greatest potential. GATE teachers also pose complex applied problems, oversee math team-type games, and facilitate participation in math competitions. Teachers use a variety of tools, textbooks and online programs to help students master and practice math concepts. Students are encouraged to participate in the Math Circle program at nearby Dominican University. Each year GATE Academy has students who score in the top 10% internationally in the worldwide Math Olympiad program.
