When schools recognize the potential of each young person and give them the tools for success, students’ dream come true.
- Sharon Olken, Executive Director of Gateway Public Schools
Gateway epitomizes positive interdependence between district and charter, bravely innovates, and steadily boosts student performance in school and in life. Gateway is a shining example of what a really good charter school can be.

People think they are incapable of succeeding because of learning disabilities, but they are not. Gateway really empowers this message.
- Maria Cristina Laws, Gateway High School Class of 2011, St. Edwards University
Gateway provides me with an education and an environment that allows me to grow. My big dream is to move up in society and then have my kids do the same.
- Ricardo, Gateway High School Class of 2014
At Gateway, I learned that it is important to get to know the people that are completely different from you because this makes acceptance and understanding so much easier. I truly appreciated the diversity.
