Gateway's Inaugural Magazine & Annual Report

Page 1



History In 1998, a group of parents had the dream of creating a school that would be a gateway to college for all students regardless of race, income, or learning style. They founded Gateway High School, a college preparatory public charter school in San Francisco, focused on serving an academically disadvantaged population. In order to increase Gateway’s impact on students especially during their formative middle school years, Gateway expanded its model with the addition of Gateway Middle School in 2011.

Mission Our mission is to send well-prepared students to college, and everything we do successfully supports this mission.

Vision By serving as a model public school organization, we hope to demonstrate that public education can and does work for diverse learners, share best practices, and serve as a catalyst for change within the public sphere. 2




Dear friends, This year, Gateway celebrates its 18th year as one of the first public charter schools in San Francisco. Since our founding, Gateway has remained committed to academic excellence through personalized, student-centered learning. In this publication, the first of its kind at Gateway, we are excited to share our accomplishments, our priorities, and vignettes of our inspirational students and faculty. This publication reflects the wide range of extraordinary people who have moved Gateway forward and who have touched the lives of hundreds of students. Thank you to the many people in our community — educators, partners, parents, volunteers and philanthropists — who have helped make Gateway’s story possible. We are proud of our students and staff, and we thank you for your support.

Your impact is truly significant.

All Students College and Career Ready

Gateway’s track record of success with sending virtually 100% of its graduates to college each year continues to be double the statewide average for public school students. Gateway students have attended and are currently enrolled in a broad range of institutions around the country. Gateway sets sights early with college visits during middle school and high school and with personalized college counseling provided by two full-time college counselors during high school.



Fernando Portillo “The transition to college from high school wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be thanks to Gateway. Gateway helped prepare me for college by encouraging me to take rigorous AP classes, teaching me how to take notes and study, and most importantly, emphasizing the fact that it’s ok to ask for help. I am so thankful for my Gateway experience and how I was supported and set up to succeed in college and beyond.” – Fernando Portillo ‘14 UC Santa Cruz

Gateway Middle –School embraces Gateway Middle School Student the unique needs of middle school

students and supports diverse learners to succeed within a rigorous, collegepreparatory program. Gateway Middle School believes that students learn best when they are known well and feel a sense of belonging; when they understand how they learn and feel that their individual learning needs are supported and respected; when they are challenged to think critically; and when they actively participate in the school community.


Building a Foundation for Student Success



Andrea, 8th Grade When Andrea entered Gateway Middle School she was shy and didn’t feel like she belonged. She lacked confidence and yearned for a sense of community. Over time, Andrea was able to build her confidence by participating in many of Gateway’s programs and clubs. Now in eighth grade, Andrea feels like she is part of a community, which she attributes to the incredible support she received from her teachers who encouraged her to open up and be proud of who she is. According to Andrea, she gained confidence in her ability as a student by discovering what type of learner she is during Learning Seminar. “Gateway helped me discover that I am an auditory and visual learner. I feel empowered knowing how I learn and what I need to do to be successful when I go to high school and college.”




Exposure Matters Gateway provides access to rigorous learning experiences that build connections between what happens in the classroom and in the real world. Gateway creates partnerships with organizations in the community in order to make learning relevant and help students expand their visions of themselves and their futures. Through programs such as Pizza & Possibilities and Gateway’s Internship program, students gain real world exposure, connect with mentors, and participate in experiences that help fuel ambitious college and career aspirations.



Internships allow Gateway students to explore

careers of interest to them, gain professional experience, build their resumes, make contacts and references for the future, and get a taste of where their education may take them. I always tell students that they can’t lose when it comes to participating in an internship. Either they find a career that they love or they realize that the career wasn’t as exciting as they thought it would be. They

have plenty of time to explore other career options.

benefit me in the future.

– Steven ‘16

Steven has been selected as a Gates Millennium Scholar and plans to attend UC San Diego in the fall.




Alegria ’16 Alegria interned at the Presidio Way Veterinarian clinic during the fall 2014 semester and was asked to return during the summer of 2015. She worked side by side with the lead veterinarian and had the opportunity to see first hand what it is like to provide health care to animals. Alegria administered shots, bathed animals before life-saving procedures, and even scrubbed into emergency surgeries. Alegria asserts that her internship provided her with the opportunity to make connections between what she was learning in the classroom to what goes on inside a veterinarian’s office. “I am extremely grateful for Gateway’s internship program, especially Mr. Grossman, who set me up with my internship and supported me throughout the entire experience,” according to Alegria. “I would not have had such an amazing experience if it wasn’t for Gateway and all the opportunities that they offer to all of their students.” Alegria will attend the University of Arizona in the fall and major in Animal Sciences or Biochemistry.


Excellence in Teaching and Learning A high level of engagement between Gateway faculty and students is one of the hallmarks of a Gateway education. Gateway believes that academic success stems from exceptional teachers in every classroom. Gateway ensures a high quality teaching and learning environment by supporting its most valuable resource, its teachers.


When students feel they belong in the classroom, and

feel valued and respected for who they are by their teachers and peers, they are able to bring their whole selves into the

room and into their learning. This makes all the difference.

Building our Future Since its founding in 1998, Gateway has proven that public education can and does work for diverse learners. Inspired by the success of our students, the power of our teachers, and the critical work yet to be done in public education, we are proud to announce the Gateway Impact Campaign. The campaign centers on three bold initiatives that will ensure greater positive outcomes for Gateway students and enable us to increase our impact beyond Gateway’s walls. Together, we can change the college-bound population in our city, better support and train educators, and create an equitable and exciting future. We look forward to sharing progress and news in the months ahead!



Thank You Volunteers and Partners We are incredibly thankful for the support of the individuals and organizations who have volunteered and partnered with Gateway to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of Gateway students. Together, we are changing the life trajectories of our students, as well as the demographics of the college-bound population in San Francisco.
