Gateway College Preparatory School Reviews

What I like about Gateway college Preparatory School the most is its academics. Unlike slower public schools, Gateway has a stronger curriculum that doesn't keep things boring dor its students. Although there are a few bad teachers, most of the teachers work hard to teach their subject in the easiest way possible. Instead of making you memorize where the points are, they teach you how to connect them which really helps the learning experience. The school is majority white, although there are a lot of mixed races in between. The school has a small population, but they work hard to give every student an option when it comes to clubs or athletics. New facilities are being built as of now and the administration is great when responding to students or parents. Gateway has helped me a lot in getting ready for college and I am glad to be a student here!

Gateway College Prep is a great school for Elementary through Middle School. Although, the High School program was not the best for me or my peers. We had multiple teachers leave every year, leaving us with "long-term" subs. I do believe that the High School program is improving after many years going down hill. I do believe that because of how my High School years went, I have learned how to teach myself, this is the best way that this school has prepared me for college.
I have been attending Gateway for almost 9 years. Since then, I have seen it change, develop, grow, and improve. The teaching staff constantly changes, which is a con. It is hard to build strong relationships with the teachers if they likely won't last until the next school year. Despite that, attending Gateway has always made me feel special, seen, recognized, and known. I know I can trust the staff who stays because they stay for a reason.
