Principal's Message

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined."

Thank you for visiting the website of Dr. Cleveland Steward Jr. Elementary School! Located in the center of Gateway’s campus, our K-4 building takes pride in promoting a safe and supportive environment in which our students grow and achieve academically, socially, and emotionally. We pride ourselves on building a school community that recognizes our similarities as little Gators but also celebrates the diverse culture represented within our school population.

Academically, our talented teachers and staff incorporate best practices to assure that a unique educational path is created and followed for each student. They put forth great effort to give students real experiences to meet the needs of the whole child. Through our Positive School-Wide Behavior initiative, we promote the simple, yet important motto of “Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Safe.”.

With the dedication of our teachers and staff and the enthusiasm and effort of our students, it is easy to see why Cleveland Steward is such an exciting place to be each and every day. I would invite parents and all stakeholders to actively volunteer and become part of our school community and all of the excitement that surrounds it. Together, we will all make a positive difference in the lives of our students.

Thank you,
Dr. Eric Knorr
