The first nine weeks of school, the science teacher was out on maternity leave and the school did not hire a substitute teacher. No science was taught to the six graders for the first eight weeks! Gateway Academy, Coral campus does not have enough books for the students. My son hardly ever had homework. They have horrible prepackaged meals that are served in the class rooms. The principle never returns calls, nobody returns calls. I took my son out of the school today due to being bullied and my son was to blame for the incident. It is not in my son s nature to be violent. He struck back to defend himself. Gateway Academy Coral campus was a giant mistake!
i think its great for the first year i went there i felt like they knew me since kinder but they didn't i was comfortable
my son is new to hga his in the six grade i think i made athe right choice bringing my son tohga
does not have the right equipment for the students on extracurricular activities
HGA a great school with excellent Teachers they help them to improve on there subject. I like the idea they started to offer tutorials after school. What I like is that they are expanding more in grade level have plans to build new schools which is good they will have High School soon. My daughters have done very well they have attend this school since Kinder they have attended HISD and PISD schools in other occasion for couple of months which I would'nt see no improvement. I as a parent have to take them back HGA for the same reason they focus more in our kids Education even the Principle you could talk to him he helps out the Students. You dont really see that in any other ISD school. If you want your child to Achieve in Life I really do recomment this school. Thank You HGA
Its pretty awesome. The school might not be that big but everything about is great.
This school is the far best school i have ever attended even though the lunch is not always great it has some of the best teachers (Owens)
HGA is a great school. The principal is present throughout the classrooms and the rest of the campus. He forms relationships with his students and goes far and beyond to make himself assessible to the parents. The curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of the population of students HGA services. The teachers are easily assessible, as you have way of reaching them beyond school hours. I have experienced a problem with a lack of classroom management with a few teachers, but they continue to work towards improvement.
HGA is the best school my daughter has ever attended. The teachers are all great and know the students needs to help them achieve their goals. Mr. Penning, the Principal has had an open door policy. He is always very helpful.
The food menu has been changed better portion sizes. New superintent trying to make the school a better school with alot of changes this year.More extracurricular activities and better teachers who care about thier education.
This school has a great principal that cares deeply for the children. On the other hand the lunch service is awful and offer very little food to the children. I would urge parents to send their children else where.
The quality of academic programs here is exceptional. The transition between grades is seamless and the principal is always visible, always doing his job. Very friendly atmosphere with almost a family feel to it. The teachers' performance is regularly reviewed, as is the principal's and the superintendent's. The School Board works hard to create policy and oversee the academic progress of the school.
Our principal is the best. He has the knowledge, performance, attitude, strength and ability to manage Houston Gateway Academy School. There are several points that makes him the outstanding principal, but the primary is the interest for his kids (the students). He has the time to greet everyone as they come in to the school. my husband and I personally had that experience several occasions. The most important is the respect and the willingness to help our children to suceed.
We are blessed to have such great teachers who go out of their way for the children at HGA. Our Principal and Assistant Principal are two of the best leaders a school could ever have. They see a bright future in our children. -Mary Gonzalez
At this time, there has been a major change in this school. A great principal is leading and taking control of the situation and issues that is occuring. Overall, I strongly believe this school will be a great school.
