Apply to Gateway Middle School!


Applying to Gateway Middle School

Students are admitted to Gateway Middle School through a lottery. Each year we enroll 104 new 6th graders and a handful of 7th and 8th grade transfer students. We have one large lottery in March for incoming 6th grade students. As spaces become available, we conduct a smaller lottery from our wait pool for transfer students. The students and families who choose to enroll bring diverse experiences, talents, learning styles, and perspectives. Our community and academic program thrives on this diversity as we seek to educate and challenge all our students.

Paper Applications

While we encourage families to submit their application through SchoolMint, you may obtain a paper application at our main office located at 1512 Golden Gate Ave or 1430 Scott Street, at enrollment events, from your school counselor, or by downloading it.
