Gates Elementary School is a student-centered neighborhood school focused on building a love for learning. We continue to reach, strive, and grow daily. At Gates, we believe in implementing data-based instructional strategies. Our English language arts program is a balanced literacy program that encompasses guided reading, writing, phonemic awareness, and self-selected reading. Our literacy initiative for grades PK-3 enables direct, guided and differentiated instruction. Additionally, we are proud to offer a comprehensive and hands-on math program. The extracurricular activities offered at Gates motivate our students to grow into productive members of society. Our school educates all students, providing special education and gifted and talented services to eligible students.
