Gateway was an okay school. It's not as concentrated on health sciences as it used to be but in the last two years that I attended, they've tried their best to incorporate more health science classes into our schedule. The staff, more specifically the high school teachers, want us to do well inside and outside of the classroom. I thank Gateway's teachers for their help with college readiness because I think my teachers have done a great job at prepping us in our last two years of high school.

Great school for academics, very competitive! I've been attending for the last four years and the diversity and education is significantly increasing. There's low student activity involvement but theres great potential.
Gateway has a reputation around the "brown" comunity as a very good school. The school building looks amazaing and so are the interiors. However, this school could make tremendous amounts of improvement. The students in class score very well however class grades and regents grade are not on the same scale. There are a handful of teachers who are excellent but there are some who do not teach as well or can not maintain the class. The adminstration is very shady, they require the teachers to provide their own materials to teach such as copy paper and claim there is no funding for the various activities students come up with. There are little to no extracirrular activites, only recently there were formations of extra ciricular activites. The school only has ap classes.
