The Gateway Schools Profile
The Gateway Schools are located on Manhattan’s vibrant Upper West Side and serve students with learning disabilities. An independent Lower School founded in 1965 and expanded to include a Middle School in 2008, Gateway enrolls 135 students between the ages of 5 and 14. Our students have above average intelligence and have experienced academic difficulty as a result of a language based learning disability, a relative weakness in processing and/or attention deficit or a combination thereof. At Gateway, we address the development of the whole child taking into consideration strengths and deficits in language, cognition, academic skills, gross and fine motor coordination and social development. In small classes, we combine a rich traditional curriculum with an instructional approach that is direct, multisensory and sequential. In our Arts program and 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. Housed in a recently renovated LEED certified facility, we offer an array of afterschool athletic and extracurricular activities.
