There is a lot of covert racism, and administration hides behind the "diversity" of the student body so they can avoid addressing racism in their school district. I've also seen teachers abusing students with mental disabilities: from pushing them into walls or pinching them on their arms. They also implemented "campus police" which has made students, particularly students of color, uncomfortable. These officers carry loaded guns and it creates a hostile environment for students. It's been 2 years since I've graduated, so hopefully they changed for the better.

Excellent district! Outstanding staff and students. Rich tradition of excellence to build on in a diverse and strong supporting community!
Gateway definitely attempts to develop a rounded out experience for all students that walk through their doors. The educational plans are set to develop one for college from freshman year, much of the staff is dedicated to seeing their students succeed, and the administration has been attempting to listen to the staff and students more in recent years and fix the issues brought up. I would like for the current student culture to be fixed, though, as overall the student body is rude and exponentially growing worse with every new grade. It is common place for rude things to be said about a teacher behind their back and bullying is not dealt with well enough for it to stop. Administration sometimes cannot even communicate well with staff and/or students.
