Gateway is a great school. I had my oldest son in private school from k3 through 2nd grade. I wasnervous but I decided to put him in public school. This was greatchoice. His grades improved and the principle there was very helpful with the transition. I would recommend this school any day. I now have two otherchildren that attened this school as well. I LOVE IT!
