do not let the reputation of the students define this school. i always heard that gateway was a bad school with bad students. the year i was transferred there i was terrified. But, I was wrong. This school is amazing. The teachers and faculty are so great and caring, even the lunch ladies. I'm proud to be a Gateway Alumni, and the past graduates agree. Take every one of gateways many scholastic offers, you will never regret it.
