"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined."
Henry David Thoreau
Gateway Middle School provides a transition in the educational experience for students coming from the elementary realm into the secondary education setting. Students are expected to develop, refine, and demonstrate personal responsibility, organizational skills, and social skills while expanding their academic foundation during their time at Gateway Middle School. It is our goal to create a child-centered learning environment that provides opportunities for each student to be successful and participate in courses and extracurricular offerings related to their interests.
Students are members of academic teams consisting of five core teachers who collaborate and plan according to student need. This collaboration focuses on providing support and encouragement to help students become independently successful in the academic setting. Teachers, students, and families often communicate in order to ensure students succeed and grow socially and academically. Our program of studies includes core courses from each of the following departments: English, Mathematics, Reading, Science, and Social Studies. Elective opportunities have expanded recently and include Robotics, STEAM 7, STEAM 8, Digital Fluency, Pre-Engineering, Crafts, Choir, Band, and Orchestra among other offerings.
It is our hope that students truly enjoy their experience at Gateway Middle School and take pride in the success and growth they experience during this important time in their lives.
