"Gateway students have a greater maturity and they take more responsibility for their part in the work. The students are more collegial with teachers, focusing on the partnership with the teacher which maximizes their learning. There is a clear difference in Gateway graduates from children who have been in the public school system." Michelle Poirer, Principal at Santa Cruz High School
