    That's wonderful school. We've moved in march 09 to US from Europe and attended school here in may-june. My girl was happy to find new friends and the teacher was marvelous. She's got lots of knowledge and didn't feel outside because of her beginning English. Great. We'll stay with this school.

    I taught in West Gates for six years and now teach in another elementary school within the district. I absolutely loved my time at Gates! The faculty is strong and the parents are supportive. It's a great place for a child to begin a life long journey of learning.
