  • We would like to hear from you!

    Please complete this brief survey to let us know how we can support you and your child. 

    March GATEWAY Family Survey 


  • School-Wide Enrichment for ALL

    Since each learner is unique, opportunities based on abilities, interests, and learning styles are key to supporting growth and ensuring enjoyment in learning.  All students in grades K-7 have the opportunity to receive enrichment based on their individual interests.   Students can visit the GATEWAY website for links.  Students, families, and/or staff members can submit an Action Information Message or reach out to the Gateway teacher for additional resources.

    He loves electronics and computers. He loves to play Minecraft because he can be creative!


    My son is very focused on art. If given the opportunity, he would draw and build with clay all day, creating characters and game scenarios. He also loves to make his own comic books whenever he has free time at school.
