Serving All Learners

Gateway's commitment to ensuring all kinds of learners are successful throughout their high school careers necessitates innovative and individual support for students both in and out of class. Below are some of the services available to all students to help them meet their full academic potential.

The Learning Center

The Learning Center reflects Gateway’s philosophy that all students learn differently and the commitment to help a diverse body of students realize their full learning potential. Often described as “the academic engine of the school,” the Learning Center is available to all students who need additional support. This is accomplished through active collaboration and teaming with all faculty members, as well as the provision of classroom/testing accommodations, supports, and services for students with Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs), 504 Plans, Private Evaluation Reports, or Student Success Team Action Plans. The Learning Center also manages the process for identifying students who may need educational testing.
