It's a simple fact that the last few years have been characterized by change and uncertainty, but they have also given us the gift of clarity around what our Gateway community needs to grow into a bigger, brighter future. As we look ahead to what our students and teachers need to keep dreaming big, three priorities become clear:
- Resilience - The pandemic and its aftermath have presented additional barriers for students from our most historically marginalized communities. We must plan to do right by our students as they continue to recover from COVID's academic, social, and emotional setbacks.
- Sustainability - We must ensure the sustainability of our schools while we plan for growth. Support from our sustaining donors provides the resources to prepare for our next phase of growth.
- Growth - After more than two decades in the San Francisco community, Gateway is ready to Dream Big about our future and growth for our students and teachers.
As with all of our work, this vision is informed by the Pillars of Gateway's Approach to Learning and Teaching. Read on to learn more about what are Big Dreams will look like at Gateway in the months and years to come.
