Welcome to Gateway

Co-Principals' Welcome

Ms. K and Ms. W

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We’re excited to build off of last year’s successes, including 100% graduation rate for the class of 2022, increased student activism and advocacy through student affinity groups and clubs, and the addition of the Flex block system. 

These successes are driven by a diverse, dynamic staff who are committed to rethinking how we do school. We recognize that if we don’t evolve, we will continue to perpetuate systemic inequities. What does this philosophy look like on the day-to-day?

* Learning that is hands-on, personal, and relevant
* An environment that recognizes the whole person and prioritizes social-emotional learning
* Opportunities for students to be agents of change in our community and beyond
* A commitment to asking for and integrating feedback

Based on feedback from our community, we’ve been working to expand our academic program– this year, that means adding Visual Arts sections; a new Yearbook & Journalism elective; and launching a partnership with Skyline Community College to provide dual enrollment courses on campus. We’re also increasing avenues for student agency and leadership, including the addition of the Safe School Ambassador program– an opportunity for 40 students to become certified trained bystander interveners in support of a safer school climate.  

While we recognize the ongoing challenges of the COVID pandemic in our lives, we continue to be inspired by the Gateway community-- students and staff alike-- who are consistently rising above, advocating for themselves and those around them, and continuing to dream big.  As a class of 2022 senior said, “Gateway has made me a more confident student who strives for success even in the face of failure. As a first generation student who has faced imposter syndrome, Gateway has taught me that it does not matter where I came from but what I make of it.”

We look forward to a year of partnership,

Becca Wieder and Stephanie Khaziran, Co-Principals


Unlocking Potential in Every Student

“We started Gateway High School as a way to reach students who hadn’t found success in other public schools. All students have the potential to succeed so we asked ourselves - what can we do to make sure we are reaching those students who need a little extra support in unlocking their potential? So we started Gateway High School, a school where all students are supported and given the skills and resources necessary for college and beyond."
