Message from Robert Cunningham, Ed. M. Head of School
Thank you for visiting the website of The Gateway Schools. I hope you will find the information in these pages to be both informative and helpful.
Both The Gateway School of New York (serving ages 5-12) and The Gateway Middle School (grades 5-8) are nurturing environments in which students with learning disabilities excel academically and socially. The students at The Gateway Schools are truly unique individuals. They have tremendous intellectual ability that comes through in many ways. They also have areas with which they struggle. We seek to educate the students in the ways that best allow them to develop as a whole person, with an acknowledgement and understanding of what is difficult as well as pride in their abilities and considerable accomplishments.
Our families, students, and educators form a strong and dedicated community. We are all committed to the success of each student and to the success of the students as a group. Much of what is done at Gateway is individualized, but participation as a member of a community is emphasized at all times. Through a focus on all aspects of development with the youngest children in our community to the concentration on planning, organization, study skills and other executive functions with our middle schoolers, The Gateway Schools provide a tremendous educational opportunity for our exceptional students.
I hope that you enjoy your visit to this website, but I know that you can only learn so much online. I encourage you to visit us in person to see first hand what a special environment we provide to our students and their families!
