Run! There has been a huge decline. The principle is horrible
Posted by a parent on 5/31/2018
school is very overcrowded. Things are often chaotic. Most teachers seem to care, but not much changes. Drop off and pickup is a nightmare. Lunch line is very long. Office staff seems very overworked and frazzled. my two girls have been bullied and teachers seemed to care but problem was never resolved. could be a great school with some work.

I'm very involved in my daughter's schooling... so please don't give me that excuse for poor adult behavior...

The administration is horrible my 8year old son was punched in the face and the same kid shoved ice down his pants and they did nothing they did not even notify me about it and then it turn out they gave my son detention and not the other boy when I tried to speak to the principal they laughed and said that's not going to be possible so I had to call the cops and then finally was able to speak to the assistant principal mrs Benitez and she was extremely rude she told me she does not have to tell me anything and that if I have a concern with the school google and find out where I can complain and then hung up on me! This school is understaffed and the pocket all the money and do not put it in the school trust me DO NOT put your child here!!!!!!!

My daughter did kindergarten at and just now started 1st grade, my son did kinder, 1st and just started 2nd at Gateway. I have been over the top happy with the school and administration thus far. My daughter was tested for gifted in kinder and my son had struggled academically; not caused by the school or teachers. I know both ends of the spectrum. Everyone has been helpful from all angles. The security guards are friendly and helpful when ever I have had contact. The administration team from 2012-2015 were outstanding, very helpful and active with the students and parents. I do not understand any of the negative reviews this school has had. Both my husband and I have been active in our children's education and in the school. The only down fall the school has that I have witnessed is, not all the parents are as interested in their child's education as I would have expected them to be. This has created some trying times for the teachers and administrative team. I am moving and will fight to keep my children in this school as it will no longer be our home school.
