UPPER MARLBORO, MD — Accokeek Academy, Glenarden Woods, Heather Hills and
Rockledge elementary schools are four of eight schools statewide to qualify for Maryland’s
prestigious Excellence in Gifted and Talented Education (EGATE) award. The Maryland
State Advisory Council on Gifted Talented Education made the selections after reviewing
EGATE applications from across the state.

“I applaud the staff at these schools for providing an outstanding program that challenges
our academically talented students,” said Dr. Alvin L. Crawley, Interim Superintendent of
Schools. ”Gifted and talented programs are essential in our schools, as they help us meet the
needs and develop the talents of every student.”

To qualify for the award, school staff must submit an application that documents how
their school’s gifted and talented education program aligns with the Maryland Criteria for
Excellence: Gifted and Talented Education Program Guidelines.

Prince George's County Public Schools now has nine schools that are EGATE certified.
