Lizarraga Elementary School identify high achieving students, including those from diverse racial, socio-economic, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds, and provide opportunities for differentiated learning that meet the students particular abilities and talents. Last school year (2012-2013), Lizarraga ES provided differentiated structure to 65 gifted students. We have a wonderful and hard working staff willing to provide the proper instruction to our gifted and talented students. Our goal is to identify over 100 gifted students. This is the perfect school for gifted students. Mr. Aguilar, GATE Coordinator.

"I am happy with Ricardo Lizarraga's GATE (Gifted And Talented Education) program. It has helped students become more advanced than they really are.It has also helped students improve their scores on tests. It is a program that challenges each and every one of us in many ways. Mr Aguilar has done a really good job in that program. He helps students in many things. He is a big help. :)" -A student
