"I just started touring middle schools and would love to get peoples thoughts and experienced based opinions on: GATE tracked classes (where GATE kids are separated from general ed kids, like at Aptos) vs. Integrated classes (where GATE kids are in the same class as everyone else but get differentiated curriculum, like at James Lick).
What are the pros and cons? Do separate classes result in deeper learning? How does each model potentially impact the student? etc?"
