AGATE of Port Washington, a Home & School Association of the Port Washington Union Free School District, is a parent-based group working within the school district to support a curriculum geared to challenge all students to their fullest potential. Focusing on the education of high-ability children, we provide a conduit to the administration and the Board of Education as a way to express our concerns. AGATE also provides an opportunity for parents to be part of a group having similar interests.
