Mission Statement

Gateway Public Schools’ mission is to prepare a broad range of learners for success in college and beyond. As model public charter schools, we are committed to serving a student body that reflects the diversity of San Francisco including a special emphasis on students with diagnosed learning disabilities, and helping each and every one of our students get into college and thrive. We believe that all students are capable of learning at high levels when schools pair high expectations and a school-wide understanding that students learn differently. At Gateway, we combine a rigorous academic program with an approach where the individual talents, strengths, and needs of our learners are identified and supported.


In 1998, six parents dreamed of creating 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. We expanded our model with the addition of a middle school in 2011. Now, 96% of our graduates go on to college, double the statewide rate. All Gateway students learn at high levels and they all learn differently. We offer a rigorous academic program in a nurturing environment, identifying and supporting the individual talents, strengths, and needs of each student.
