One of the many things I love about Gateway is that they really do focus on the whole child--we have seen this time and time again. My children are nurtured and encouraged to ...  Read more

They have a horribly misleading Smart Tuition program that traps you into being obligated to pay tuition even if you have financial hardship that makes it impossible after you've signed. They're sending us to collections for 4 months of tuition and our daughter hasn't set foot in the school for the ...  Read more

My daughter attended Gateway School from K to 8th grade. We had only intended to stay for earlier years but we fell in love with the school. It is more than a school, it's a community or loving and supportive teachers, parents and kids.
