We’re not just a group of buildings where students come to learn. We’re a family that cares about the success of every individual. We’re located in Aurora and welcome all students — those in our district and beyond. We have an open enrollment process and typically take applications from January through May. Visit us and see for yourself why Gateway is a great place to learn!
The Olympian is not just our school symbol, it is a spirit we embody — where success is measured by both achievement and participation. Camaraderie and a mutual commitment to each other’s progress and wellbeing is central to who we are.
Our 1,500 students come from varied circumstances and all sorts of backgrounds. Yet when they are on campus, they are a close-knit family. Along with teachers and staff, they support one another along their journeys. That solidarity is the reason our alumni keep in touch. In fact, many have come back here to work in our classrooms and administration.
No matter where Gateway students want to go in life — college, trade school, or straight into work — they leave here with the education and the confidence, to tackle the world.
Students are the heart of Gateway, and their success is what drives us. Our diverse community helps us to challenge our mindsets and embrace each student for who he or she is. We provide a full range of support from college preparation and career counseling to special education needs and emotional and mental health assistance.
