For those parents not able to spend $30 - $40k a year for private school in San Francisco, this is a great alternative.

My school is okay. There seems to be a lot of racial discrimination and bullying within the campus community. Not everyone treats everyone else fairly. I don't like this though. It seems hard for the teachers to control since they keep on having meetings and gathering the different grades from each house ...  Read more

Gateway has great curriculum and a lot of heart. The teachers are challenging and caring. My other kids went to private high schools and I am now wondering why I didn't take a closer look at a wonderful charter school such as Gateway.

A small successful college prep charter school in an urban environment with 95-100% of the students graduating and going to college-what's not to like?!

Hands down, it's the teachers. They make the subjects fun and interesting for the students. They are creative, smart, and work well together.

I have to agree with the others. The teachers and staff are the heart of the the school. They make learning interesting which motivates the students.

Gateway is extraordinary in many ways, but perhaps most illustrative is this -- its student population contains four times as many kids with identified learning differences as other public schools in the area and yet 95% of seniors get accepted into college. Teachers teach to strengths and continually ...  Read more

Gateway High School
San Francisco Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
