Our now 7th grader has been at Gateway since kindergarten, and with every passing year we are confident she is getting the best education in Santa Cruz. At Gateway, the kids learn by doing things, not by being talked at. They work with each other to solve problems. Questions lead to conversations, not ...  Read more

I have enormous respect and love for this school! My two kids transferred from public schools at different points and both thrived from day one. The teachers and staff went out of their way to make our kids and us feel included. I didn't realize when they joined that the middle school was so strong, ...  Read more

The newly configured "Discovery Center" will combine our library and technology programs into an integrated learning ...  Read more

I have a Gateway graduate, now in high school and two children currently enrolled at Gateway. As a former educator I know that Gateway's educational philosphy is fine tuned in accordance to how students learn best. The curriculum is taught with a student oriented and thematic approach. The students ...  Read more

I am a 25-year K-12 educator, author, and school leader serving on Gateway's Board of Trustees, and that's my lens for this review. Many schools aim (and claim) to teach "the whole child."
