About Gateway Middle School
Since opening in 1998, Gateway High School has sent more than 96% of its diverse graduates to college. However, each year we have faced a growing challenge: more students entering 9th grade underprepared. Our motivation to combat this challenge sooner and to increase our overall impact inspired us to extend the successful academic and educational programs of Gateway High School to the middle grades (6-8), with the opening of Gateway Middle School in 2011.
Gateway Middle School combines a rigorous academic program with an approach where the individual talents and strengths of its students are identified and supported. We seek and support students who have ambition, who are committed to working hard, and who are eager to share responsibility for their own learning. Working with teachers committed to our mission, Gateway Middle School students will acquire the skills, habits, and knowledge necessary for academic and personal success in a college preparatory high school, in college, and in adult life.
Gateway Middle School's values of responsibility, community, excellence, and respect for others should inspire students to contribute to their communities however they can. By attending a school which fully embraces the diversity of the Bay Area, Gateway Middle School students will appreciate what they have in common with those who are different and value what they learn from one another.
