Gateway Community College is great because everything is so easy to find. There are so many programs and extra curricular activities to get involved in as well. For me personally the Advisors are amazing at Gateway. They helped me get to Orientation and started with my classes. I am now registered ahead of time and am ready to learn! Personally I couldn't have done it without the staff. They are all so proficient with their roles at the college. To me, that shows that the district knows what they are doing and I appreciate that.

There are many dedicated high school teachers whom the students love to learn from! Unfortunately, the administration (namely, the superintendent) has no idea what they are doing. For example, they changed the grading guidelines two times within a 2 month period and have blocked requests for school spirit events. Another problem is with the high school counselors. They regularly respond to questions from parents with completely false information, it is very difficult for students to be seen (by appointment only) to their assigned counselor, and there is no aid or guidance provided to the students regarding direction or scholarship opportunities.
I love Maricopa, it really feels like a community and you receive personal guidance from your teachers and admin. It is still growing and adding programs and opportunities and I'm sure it'll be a 5 star experience in no time!
