School for Advanced Studies (SAS)

Schools for Advanced Studies (SAS) is a designation given to resident K-12 schools for exemplary implementation of Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) services and support. The primary purpose of SAS is to establish and nurture gifted/talented demonstration sites at resident schools, in order to share innovative, equitable, and effective GATE practices Districtwide. By providing high-quality differentiated instruction with an emphasis on depth, complexity, acceleration and novelty, SAS sites offer high-level academic opportunities that meet the unique educational needs of K–12 gifted learners, identified in the Intellectual, High Achievement, Specific Academic, Creative and Leadership Ability categories or verified based on critical thinking/achievement.

Students residing within the SAS site’s boundaries: Students residing within the school boundaries of a designated SAS site who meet the eligibility criteria will be placed in our school’s SAS program (unless a parent has opted out). Grade K-5 resident students interested in enrolling in the school’s SAS program must inform the office when enrolling. The school will then proceed to verify the student’s eligibility.

Students residing outside the SAS site’s boundaries (but within L.A. Unified boundaries): For the 2019-20 school year, all L.A. Unified students in grades Pre-K–12 who reside outside school boundaries and who meet the eligibility criteria are eligible to apply for SAS participation through the Choices process at either https://goto.lausd.net/ or http://echoices.lausd.net/.
