Real-World Learning at Gateway

Gateway’s curriculum and program provides students with the knowledge, skills, and habits needed for the 21st century. Our up and coming STEAM center and current programs provide students with opportunities to explore real-world learning experiences.

Gateway's STEAM Center

Students in the Impact Lab

Gateway is home to a new, dedicated space that ignites our students' creativity, fosters their critical thinking, and enables them to engage with technology, each other, and the world around them. The STEAM Center, a renovated 4,000 square foot former locker room on the Gateway High School campus, includes a Maker Lab where students and teachers tinker, test, prototype, and engage in hands-on learning that requires real-world problem solving.


Gateway's Outdoor Ed Program

Gateway's commitment to providing an experiential learning environment extends far beyond the classroom. Our outdoor education program enables students to learn skills in community development, leadership, and collaboration. Through field trips in sixth and seventh grade, students learn early on the value of respect for themselves, others, and the environment.
