Dear Gateway Community,
Last week was filled with celebration here at Gateway! On Tuesday, our fifth graduating class from Gateway Middle School was promoted to high school, and our 17th graduating class from Gateway High received their diplomas on Saturday.
We're thrilled to share that 100% of our seniors graduated - an incredible achievement - and, 100% of the class was accepted to colleges and universities in California and throughout the US.
Nearly 50 graduates from the Gateway High School Class of 2018 were members of Gateway Middle School's pioneering class, giving us the honor of educating them for the past seven years.
Summer is usually the time of year when I reflect on all the wonderful things we have accomplished as a community, and there is so much to be proud of!
Our students are college bound, our teachers are incredible leaders and experts in their field, our volunteers reflect the values of our community, and we created new and life changing opportunities for our students.
As we look to the future, I am excited that next school year brings Gateway's 20th Anniversary. Stay tuned as we plan many exciting ways to celebrate 20 years of making an impact on the lives of over 1,700 students.
I am in awe of how everyone in our community - teachers, families, friends, staff, and volunteers - rally around our students to ensure they have the brightest futures possible.
A heartfelt thank you for all that you do.
Have a great summer!
Executive Director, Gateway Public Schools
