The Gateway School Profile
For 50 years, The Gateway School has transformed the lives of children with learning disabilities by teaching them the academic and self-advocacy skills and strategies necessary for success in mainstream schooling and life. After an average stay of 4 ½ years, Gateway’s 600 graduates have gone on to attend middle and high schools throughout Greater New York, matriculate at colleges or universities around the country and enjoy professional lives as doctors, bankers, lawyers, dancers, musicians, actors, salespeople, outdoorsmen, or firefighters. To do this, Gateway creates a positive environment for students who experience academic difficulty as a result of a language based learning disability (dyslexia, reading and writing disorders), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), executive function disorder, and visual, spatial or auditory processing difficulties. Gateway’s expert teachers develop students into skilled and strategic independent learners, fortified by an understanding of themselves as learners, capable of advocating for themselves, and able to work as part of a team and contribute to and participate in their chosen community.
Located on Manhattan’s vibrant Upper West Side and housed in a recently renovated LEED certified facility, Gateway is an independent school that enrolls 145 students between the ages of 5 and 14 in an Elementary and Middle School. In small classes with a low student: teacher ratio, faculty and therapists meet students where they are, pay close attention to how students’ developing language impacts on how they think, feel and learn, and individualize instruction accordingly. Through an Arts program and The Center for Educational Enrichment, students solidify and generalize skills and understandings through hands-on learning. These two programs also foster students’ interests, talents and passions. The school offers an array of afterschool athletic and extracurricular activities. To ensure high quality instruction, all teachers, specialists and therapists participate in an on-going professional development program.
