School Official Point of View

Posted February 14, 2013

Gateway is a school that relies on open and proactive communication between staff, students, parents, and the community. While the quality of our academic programs and extra-curricular offerings is a source of great pride, we need positive and negative feedback from our families as we continue to grow and evolve. All of the administrative, instructional, and support staff operates under an "open door/open school" policy and views our families as partners in the educational process.

I've heard of tons of kids that have been at this school and transferred out, and I don't blame them at all. This is not a worthwhile school at all, no matter how great they claim themselves to be. My child was there for 2 years and my close niece was there for 1, and it was constant aggravations at one thing or another. The teachers hardly teach anything, the kids play online all the time, and they watch an entire movie for fun every Friday in elementary school! Field trips are a joke - they go out all the time, and expect parents to pay for them, and at least a couple of the field trips each year are to play parks or movie theatres. A parent-friend said it best.... "this school is okay for kids who are completely average, but it's not a good place for anyone who is accelerated or has special needs." The school does absolutely NOTHING to help ANYONE with any kind of special needs or who is behind, and doesn't follow through with the programs it sets up for accelerated kids. At the beginning of the year, they talked about a sort-of honors program, but quit it about halfway through the year. Basically, never trust anything they say, and send your kid somewhere else for the best.

I love Gateway. I am a parent of a child who hated school till he went to Gateway. He loves school now and is progressing nicely. I am not a Teacher or and Administrator at Gateway, so for those that say that the school comments good to every bad is not true. I have never donate any money to the school because we are not in a place that we can right now, but i feel like my kid gets the same education as everyone there. This school is a good school and maybe there test scores have been a lower than most would like, but remember they get kids based on a lottery system and that will likely pull scores down some. My kids has been at this school for 2 years and I would never even think of changing him. Thank you Gateway for helping me to educate and raise a great young man. I appreciate it more that work can say.

This school is a mess! When I enrolled my child into the elementary school he had already been identified as Gifted/Talented from RRISD. We believed the sales pitch they spewed and decided to give it a try. They made it sound like they knew how to differentiate education- yeah right! When I finally pulled my child out mid year and reentered him back into RRISD he was SERIOUSLY behind the other students- And this is an id'd G/T student. We managed to get him caught up, but I shudder to think where he would be academically if we had let him finish the year out!! BTW if you notice, all the 4/5 star comments are immediately following negative "true" parent comments. Gateway might be able to bury those negative comments by posting a bunch of fake comments after each bad review, but the dates speak for themselves. Kinda weird that following a negative comment there are 3-4 good ones following it but they were ALL posted on the same day. Hmmmmmm, sounds as fishy as this school is!

My child has been at Gateway for three years now. The school has come a long way from three years ago but still have a long way to go before I think it achieves the high-standards that they market to the out-side world. The school still suffers from signficant turn-over problems, "lazy teaching methods"..ie...too much on-line work and not enough actual teaching and mentoring. There still is not enough transparency. We really never know what is going on in the leaders head or what their educational plans really are...and they NEVER, EVER ask us (parents) how they are doing. Also. They encourage a $1200/per month/per student contribution but we get no influence at all in their decisions. Really ? Also needs to do better on STAR tests. Orenda board. Wake up !

We could not be happier. Our boys have been at Gateway for three years now and are flourishing. One of my son's teachers stated this is the first time in 12 years I feel like am teaching. I believe that is the common sentiment as they develop and manage their curriculum. Is it perfect? No. There are growing pains as we expected. It is a charter school that has to supplement with donations and that is fine with us. It is a private school atmosphere partially funded by the public. We look forward to the future as the school gets better every year. If you are complaining about this school you won't be happy anywhere.

We love Gateway!!! My child is very happy here!!! I am excited that this goes up to 12th grade. I wanted a more intimate setting - not so many kids - and we got it!!!! My child is making good friends, likes the teachers, and loves being treated like a responsible citizen. Participating in so many cool electives is awesome!!! In listening to others there seems to be growing pains but it happens at the best of schools. I have had no problems and I would totally recommend this school!!!

Great salespeople, not so great educators. We bought the gator bites sales pitch and just feel so duped. This school constantly leaves me saying, "what a disorganized mess." There's just not much going on here. There is very little communication, no one seems very inspired, and teachers/admin are leaving. There are some great ones but I'd be surprised if they stuck around. After leaving, we found that our high schooler was far behind academically in a couple of subjects despite being ahead when we first enrolled. If you are close by and want something similar to other public schools but smaller, this might be the place for you, although you have to be ok with the disorganization. We pretty much want the usual stuff for our kids--kindness, respect, and a challenging, meaningful education. We couldn't get that at Gateway but we have found it elsewhere so definitely keep looking if you're with us on that!

My son has attended Gateway for 3 years now. While not 100 percent sold in the beginning I think it is a good fit for him. They had some growing pains the first year that they had middle school but it has improved 100 percent. I think the teachers are great and are very involved.

I am sorry to read of the prior reviewer's disappointment. Regarding recently posted graduation data, where is this data posted? Was the Tech campus (separate school) included? Sports are ABSOLUTELY affordable. We have paid far less for sports at Gateway than we have paid at any other school and received far more in terms of uniforms, coaching, facilities, UIL level competition, etc. We have had several children at Gateway for the last several years, and prior to Gateway they attended another charter school and a private school locally. We have found the teachers, coaches and administration at Gateway far more caring and involved. Our children have had far more opportunities here to "shine" academically and in extra-curricular activities. My children are older and have received numerous college acceptances, as well as generous academic and athletic scholarship offers. The school is not perfect, no school is. To the previous reviewer, your experience is what YOU make of it. You can take advantage of the opportunities offered to you, or not. After reading your review, I doubt if you'll see opportunities elsewhere either.

It's not easy but there is so much support at Gateway to help kids who want an advanced education. The teachers are nothing but incredible, they WANT to be there. No teacher contracts and there is an unspoken high bar the staff wants our kids to meet. Taking the STARR benchmark test was a breeze for my kids. Why? Because it's over material they have already learned and moved on from. No place is perfect but at Gateway situations are managed immediately, no tolerence is not just a couple of words. We feel blessed to be part of this growing school that deives excellence.

My son attends Gateway and loves it! The teachers and staff are very attentive. They are all very involved. We love the fact they are a 'bring your own device' school, leaving all those heavy books on shelves. Email, facebook, Moodle, face to face, anyway you want to communicate they're open to it. He also attends afterschool care which is cost effective and fun. There are lots of options for extra curricular activities and clubs. The campus is in a rural setting (unlike most charter schools which are in strip centers or office complexes); we thoroughly enjoy the drive, the beauty and the new, upcoming campus. They are a charter school, so kinda public but operate more like private. K-12, 100 kids max per grade level (4 classes per grade, 1000 student in the school) & both my kids can attend the same campus together. I would recommend Gateway to anyone!

My kids have been going to Gateway for three years now. It's been an adjustment for the whole family. There have been ups and downs and there were times I considered moving them back to regular public school. I think the biggest testimony to the school is that my kids actually love it. They are challenged to be the best they can be and they are constantly rising to that challenge and asking what's next. I am extremely happy with where Gateway is currently and I look forward to seeing where they go over the next few years.

Gateway has been a trajectory changing experience for my children. I am thrilled with the technology based learning and the ability for the teachers to creatively challenge the students according to their unique needs

Gateway is a wonderful school! My 3rd grade daughter has been going there since she began 1st grade, and now my son is in Kindergarten there. We absolutely love the teachers and staff. My kindergartener is already doing more than my daughter did in a public school when she was in Kindergarten. The classes are smaller, and the teachers have so much more freedom to teach than at a public school. We will be at Gateway until both of my children graduate!

This is our second year at Gateway CPS. All three of our children attend school here now. We were looking for an alternate solution for our kids education that would provide them a better education than what they were getting through RRISD and provide them a safe, constructive environment to go to everyday. Gateway CPS has far exceeded our expectations! We have seen our children grow so much more educationally than we ever did through RRISD schools. We fully support Gateway CPS and look forward to the coming growth of the school and watching our children and others succeed there!

Most misleading name for a school I have ever known. If it is such a great college prep school, then why aren't their AP and SAT scores better. Has one of the worst facilities I have ever seen for a school. If it is so great, why are kids leaving to go back to ISD schools. The only kids that can handle this schools are the one 's their parents let play games in their room all the time. What a depressing mess.

My child has been at Gateway for 5th grade and 6th grade and I have never felt like Gateway hasn't had an open door policy. When issues have arisen I spoke to the proper administrator and the concern was handled immediately. My child does not "teach" himself and he certainly does not have failing grades. In fact he has very high averages in every class. His science teacher and his math teacher have been extraordinary and have given him very good if not the best education he has ever had. He is extremely advanced compared to his peers so I'm not really sure what "teach themselves and taking a class online" means. My child has never taken a class online. Hmm. I know we all have our own opinion, but maybe we should address it with the administrators before going off on some public site and giving people the wrong impression. If one is not happy with the school, withdrawal is always an option. Just saying!

If you are interested in coming to Gateway, just ask around and talk to people who have their children there. It isa great school! I feel fortunate to have my children there. I also like the GISD schools we are zoned to, but we wanted something smaller that still provided a great learning experience and opportunities for our kids. That is what we got with Gateway. I have 2 kids in elementary and 1 in intermediate. The teachers are amazing! The administrators are proactive. The founder does have a business background and because of that he was able to take an idea and bring it to life. Gateway prepares your kid for college by utilizing technology, but they do not have the kids do online, self-taught classes. That is false. The teachers and the teaching are a big part of what makes GW so special. I liked that the high school kids were brought over work with the elementary kids one day. It is good for both the older and younger ones to interact and there is nothing wrong with doing something fun at school. There are less than 2 weeks of school left so give me a break! Gateway is not for everyone, but it is great for my family and hundreds of others!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
