Our Story

Our Story

In 1998, a group of six parents had the dream of creating a school that would be a gateway to college for all students regardless of race, income, or learning style. They founded Gateway High School, a college preparatory, public charter school in San Francisco, on the paired principles that all students can learn at high levels and that all students learn differently. Since then, more than 96% of our graduates have gone on to college (double the statewide rate).
