  • I am currently in this school,in 5th grade and they care about the students and they love to teach but the best teacher there is Mrs.Lane,my teacher,because she gets things done right on schedule and she is totally nice!But if you act up she'll write a referall.Mrs.Adams is the principal and she helps the students a lot,too.Gateway Elementary is a safe school and you should put your children in it.

  • I am the grandparent of austin sales and alexis mcnulty. I can not believe the stupidity of gateway for sending them home and dropping them off at a bus stop hours before pick up time without any confermation from the parents. how could you let a 7 year old and a 10 year old get off at a bus stop where they could have been abducted and possibly killed?my daughter called the school and they said it wasnt their fault. it was the "automated system."austin and alexis walked to their grandparents house which was a few blocks away.but no one home. luckily the neighbor was letting the dog out.god knows what could have happened to those two beautiful grandchildren of mine.im really to upset about it right now and cant really tell you exactly what is on my mind.this automated system you have is not safe enough for my grandchildren.and believe me,the ball dont stop here.all the parents need to know that you have put two childrens lives in danger out of pure negligence. very upset grandfather.fred sales
