Gateway Language & Culture 5

We moved our children to Gateway after several years in the Boise School District. We have be more that satisfied with the teachers and the progress both of our children have made academically. More importantly, the principal and staff take bullying seriously and are immediate in their actions to contain such behavior. With a school that is so culturally diverse they do a wonderful job showing compassion, and teaching these students how to make good choices in school work as well as socializing. Moving to this school has been a positive change for our family.

Gateway's language immersion program is amazing. Talk about getting a head start and expanding your horizons to understand 2 languages in elementary school. Our kids are some of many in their class that are learning far above their grade level in math and reading (and that's just in the regular classroom!), as well as learning the brand new language and all of their school concepts in it. The teachers are top tier for teaching to the various levels of understanding within a class room and helping every child succeed. These kids take in so much more than we want to imagine, and this school shows you just how much they can learn.

The principal has taken on too many special programs at this school and leaves it up to the staff to 'figure it out' and run them. He is a nice face for the school but is quite often not there and is not much of a leader, which leaves the teachers to fend for themselves concerning any challenges they might have, whether it be curricular based, discipline based or what have you. The PTO is small and clicky.When I was a child,meetings were in the evenings, not at noon on a work day.My neighbor and I attended a meeting at the first of the school year and neither him nor I felt welcome,like we were intruding.The PTO pres seemed nice and friendly but the rest of them were set in their ways.I've enjoyed my child's teachers thus far-they've been pretty good, but we're thinking about homeschooling.

Great Teaching Staff and wonderful support staff, the Principal Mr. 'A-M' gets personally involved with the students and encourages his staff to be more than instructors. Mentoring is culture at this school. Really active PTSO and staff even gives up saturdays for extra curricular activities!
