Please parents do not send your children here! You will regret it! They lie about grades. They will do anything to make themselves look good. They will not allow children to get a bad grade, even if it means cheating to get a better grade. This school is so below the level of other schools. Terrible!!!

We have both of children enrolled here, our eldest starting in the school's 2nd year, having attended now from K-4. She never attended preschool or daycare, but flourished with her first school experience in kindergarten, excelling and exceeding expectations. She is encouraged and given work that meets her learning speed and abilities. She has consistently scored above average on MAP and NWEA testing, and maintains a steady place on the honor roll. Our son is now is 1st grade, having been at GSA since kindergarten, and his experience is above par as well. He has struggled with vision problems and reading has been a challenge, but with the guidance of this school and it's above average teaching model, he is now scoring above average in all areas of his NWEA testing, and loves to read. I could not be happier with GSA as a whole. The curriculum is on point, the teachers and staff are committed and involved, and the community involvement is a great plus. We have a 3rd child on the way, and unless something drastically changes, she will, of course, be a GSA attendee.

It's a relatively small school that parents and students have the ability to shape. The academics are well well above the standard city wide.

My son received homework during the week (M-F) but not much on the weekends. I feel this is appropriate for elementary school.

Again... While it may be an added perk for students to have a teacher devrlopetjis trait.... This should be taught at home.

My grandson attends Gateway and it seems to be a very organized, happy, and energized place for learning.

This school is wonderful!!! My grandson loves it and is never bored. I am very happy that the 2 teachers he has had (K and 1st) understand his thought process and figured him out so he cannot manipulate them as he is capable of doing in a sweet way. The curriculum is keeps him interested and curious. Great, Great school!!!!!!! .
