Gateway's approach to teaching and learning is the subject of a 2020 case study from the Learning Policy Institute, which documents "how the creation of a positive school climate (at Gateway Schools), along with a full and rich curriculum focused on meaningful learning, has led to improved motivation, sense of belonging, and student achievement that outpaces most similarly situated schools in California." We're delighted to share their findings.


Across my time at Gateway, what really transformed my life were people - classmates, teachers, administrators, advisors - who supported me whenever I tried something new or stepped outside of my comfort zone. That kind of support empowered me to continue trying new things, and to keep finding ways to contribute to the Gateway community."

Gateway teachers inspired me to dig deeper into the issues around me, advocate for myself and others, and dream big! I am so thankful for the Gateway community for its encouragement and opportunities."

My experience at Gateway really changed me. Before I started, my grades weren’t stellar, and I had no academic confidence. But when I came to Gateway the teachers were so genuinely interested in their fields and enthusiastic about us as students, I was shown that your capacity is much larger than you think.”
