Gateway is an awesome school. It is safe, teaches your child at a very high and advanced level of academic that by the time your child is in kinder they are reading way above 1st grade/2nd grade level. This school does have it's downsides. 1) There is no financial aid available for families 2)Their new director I believe has not been up to par with the director that left about 2 years ago, the sports program is terribly lacking and so is the Spanish program.

We are so happy in this school. My children are so excited to go to school in the morning. The education is exceptional and the teachers are 'heaven sent'. The student-teacher ratio is an average of 15 or less to one teacher. The extracurricular activies is growing but does need a bit of help. The sports program is ok but needs a bit more involvement. Overall, it's a safe environment full of love and just plain great people and children. We could not be happier there.

The school changed directors two years ago and is now beginning to move foward.

great little school, excellent curriculum, however the spanish program is terrible. And I believe children in our society and our city are handicapped without the spanish language.

I enjoyed how GOD was put first in my childs life. She spoke alot about the Bible which made us want our daughter to continue going to this school. The teachers and staff were also very special in my daughters heart. Thanks....

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
