Dear Friends and Families,
The middle school years are an exciting time in which students are exploring their personal identities, developing independence, and becoming active members of their community. Middle school is also a time when students are gaining the skills, habits and knowledge they will need for academic and personal success in high school, college and beyond.
At Gateway Middle School, we embrace the unique needs of middle school students, and support all of our diverse learners to succeed within a rigorous, college-preparatory program. We believe that middle school students learn best when they are known well and feel a sense of belonging; when they understand how they learn and feel that their individual learning needs are supported and respected; when they are challenged to think critically; and when they actively participate in the school community.
We also know that students learn best when their families are actively involved in their education. We’re excited to partner with you in the education of your children, and we believe that clear communication is essential to a strong school and family relationship. I hope that you find Gateway’s website to be a helpful communication tool, and I also invite you to contact us or visit the school to get to know us better.
Welcome to the Gateway community.
Aaron Watson, Principal
