I have zero complaints about this school. My child with a 504 Plan is absolutely thriving here and staff even go out of their way to teach kids how to organize their homework and backpacks to help them be successful with keeping tracks of homework and paperwork. Nobody ever did that for my kid before. My son is in school sports and likes school alot, has lots of friends and at his 504 Plan meeting the teachers volunteered to give him access to earbuds and other things to help with sensory issues! That never happens anywhere. We had one issue with a teacher saying something stupid to him- it was a specials teacher and she apologized profusely once confronted. The staff works hard to help all the students and it's a positive environment. My son has friends here. No complaints. Wonderful school and other campuses should observe here about what to do right to help their students.
My kids are excelling at Gateway Pointe. We came from out of state last year and the staff/teachers really made us feel at home.
My school is excellent with letting me know how my student is faring. This school has great teachers that help our children succeed.
My husband and I have moved around the US quite a bit for his work. I have two children that are currently in 6th grade at Gateway. In all their years of schooling and in the numerous schools they have been in they have always been successful, hardworking students. I'm not one of those parents that is here to tell you that my children are gifted and are not getting the attention they need. They are your everyday children that have strengths and weaknesses. They did A-B work consistently and were mathletes. Since being at Gateway they do D-F work. The teachers are content in letting them do so. They weigh their grades unfairly. 20% class work 80% test, If your child is not good at test taking, they don't stand a chance at this school. I have also found that the teachers FAIL to teach! My children come home with assignments and have not the first clue how to complete them. I found a charter school for my daughter and moved her over. In a matter of weeks, she is a straight A student! It saddens me that I dislike a school so badly that I can not wait for this academic year to be over so we can move on!
