At Gateway School, students learn in an environment that is individualized for their specific needs. Each classroom follows a pathway, Epic Path, Brave Path, and Fearless Path. All paths provide a language integrated curriculum supported by Gateway speech language pathologists. Gateway School is a language/communication first school. Throughout the program students are supported in developing functional communication, understanding the world around them, and how to navigate their world.

Gateway School provides an individualized, comprehensive education to our students with communication and language-related disorders and/or autism guiding them to independence in the areas of communication, academics, social, and life skills. Students are provided with a learning environment to meet their individualized learning style and needs through various paths, Brave, Epic, and Fearless Paths. All students are provided a program with language and communication integrated throughout the day.

Gateway’s Paths are designed to be fluid and flexible. Student data is regularly reviewed and analyzed to ensure each student is provided with an educational environment to support his or her learning style and maximize learning outcomes, progress, and independence.

All Gateway instruction activates multiple modalities and engages learners through active learning strategies. Each class participates in a Language Group led by a speech-language pathologist, focusing on enhancing communication and language skills, expressive, receptive, and pragmatic, within a group setting. All students engage in recreation, music, library, and social skills instruction weekly.
