I love this school it is amazing. I have heard this school is wonderful. It is in good condition the teachers are perfect.The lunches ate wonderful!!!!!!!
My school is Gateway Charter Academy.. To me the curriculum is excellent and the teachers so far are fantastic. I will continue to let my children attend as long as it stay like this.
My son attends Gateway and he's in Pre-K. Overall, I don't like this school one bit. I knew on the first day of school that this was a huge mistake. My husband and I pulled into a parking spot and noticed that they have secretary misspelled on the assigned parking spots for the church. The staff sends home flyers, homework...etc. with grammar and typos regularly. My son was without homework for 2 weeks one time and it was all because the copy machine was broken. That is totally unacceptable to me. I can't wait until this school year is over because we're withdrawing him. I feel that the kids are at a disadvantage there. They are not being taught properly and I'm not standing for it. The straw that broke the camels back was when I attended the first PTO meeting and the PTO staff were asking for a flat screen.
My son has attended Gateway for a year and he loves his teacher. I think it is a good school overall and seems to be making progress to become even better & I love the staff especially the office staff.
My daughter has been attending GCA since 2nd grade (now in 6th). I believe the school needs to put a little more focus on who they hire, but overall my daughter has done great. She is an A/B student and has had excellent instruction in order to be successful with TAKS.
i really wouldn't recommend letting your kids go to gateway because the students and staff are very disorganized and the classrooms are very small and there is no a/c. i would rather go to a public school.
Please do not put your children in this school. They are not concerned with academics. The staff including the principal is very unprofessional and should not be allowed to educate.
I think that Gateway Charter Academy is an excellent school academically, sports wise, and staff is very supportive.
I think Gateway is a great school. The curriculum is great and I can always talk to teachers and the principal. This is my son first year and he loves the school.
I placed my son here for Pre-K and i was very displeased with the school. Their are two many children in one classroom. I think they need to add some more Pre-K teachers to the school.
As a parent, I would not recommend anyone to send their child(ren) to Gateway Charter. It is very unorganized and the administration is horrible! The students do not seem to have interest in any of the academics and the parent involvement is extremely low. The parent's are not at all encouraged or motivated to participate in their child's academic success by the administration. The rooms are too small and crowded for the number of students and this causes both students and teachers to be in an uncomfortable environment. The principal is awful, he does not demonstrate the compassion or patience of a good leader.
The elementary level is great! My child has improved his reading and math skills drasticaly in Ms. Crews' class. Thanks Gateway!
This school has great teachers and administration and will provide A+ quality education in the future when it gets a library, and more organization. It is a small scenary and very personable. It could use expanded space and more funding so that they kids could be offered additional opportunities.
My daughtet goes to this school and was already very smart and they have just made her even smarter I really appreciate and give thanks to her teachers for doing such a good job with her and the faculty and staff for keeping her safe while she is there and looking foward to my other children going as well.

This school needs to be checked out. My child had attended that school and I never seen so much mess in my life. Don't let this school fool you at all. They are nice and understanding at the beginning but let the table turn and they will give you the run around. I know for a fact if something [is] going up there that parents need to check out.
I love this school. I have 2 sons that attend GCA ,one of them has a learning disablity. GCA has on hand the best teacher to handle any type of student you have. The staff is helpful and caring. The classes are smaller, which means there is more on hands time that the techer can spend with her students. Bigger is not always better. Next year I have all my childrean at Gateway. Go Gateway Gators.
My children have been going to Gateway Charter Academy since it opened. I have to say that I have seen an improvement in their academic skills and their willingness to learn ever since they started there. As a parent, I stay involved in my kid s education. Therefore, I can honestly say that the staff members at Gateway Charter Academy are 'Top Notch!' The Classrooms are not too big, so the teachers can personalize their teaching methods. The school is improving in extra curricular activities, although they remain focused on what's important... academics. I have two kids attending there. One is in the 8th grade and the other s in the 5th grade. I have one more child who will be attending there next year as a kindergartener.
My son went to Gateway for his second grade year. It was so bad he had to repaet the second grade again this year. The teacher he had seemed unconcerned and seemed to have an attitude with the kids and the parents.
Gateway is a great school. The teachers and staff are friendly and I am able to talk to administrators,most time without an appointment. My two children are happy to go to school and they are learning. Last, I love the small ratio of students in the class.
