Gateway Early College High School opened in 1996 and on average has 225 students enrolled in 9th through 12th grades. The charter high school is an accelerated career focused educational environment with the goal to prepare students to pursue higher learning education or to enter the workforce. The school campus is on the same campus at the GateWay Community College to aid students with the ability to receive their high school diploma as well as an Associate’s Degree in five years or less.
The school has small class sizes which helps students have a more one on one opportunity with their teachers. The school does not offer any type of sports or physical education classes, but does offer drama, dance, and student clubs and special programs including yearbook and community service.
Parents are very pleased with the opportunity for their children to earn not only a high school diploma but also an Associate’s degree. Students are very happy with the teachers and also the chance they have to “catch up” on credits and to excel. The school offers a wonderful learning environment where students can and will succeed in their goals.
