    Gatewood has a few mind you few good teachers that work extremely hard with the OKCPS guidelines that they are given. The school is lacking in the front office in friendliness and organization. I don't know how many times events were always screwed up because of bad communication and disorganization. The times were always mixed up and know one knew exactly when things were going to take place. I think the principal has lost her desire to improve this school. These kids our kids are the future! A disheartening problem is there is absolutely no playground equipment! All the kids do is run around in circles. Our kids need to let off a little steam. There is little or no support from the parents except when it comes to giving out prizes during carnivals. Parents and teachers have to come together to make this a better school. It has a lot of potential. If other Okc Public Schools can turn their schools around than so can Gatewood. -from a concerned parent

    This is the worst school I have every been involved in in the OKC Public School system. Last year the teacher and principal denied me access to information about my stepdaughter because I was not her "legal guardian." She fainted in class one day and the teacher nor the principal would tell me because I had not competed adopting her. I had her in two other schools in the system before I ever married her father and they were happy to share information about her. It even states in the OKCPS handbook that stepparents are entitled to that information but this school denied me. My husband and I were threatened with campus expulsion because we fought this. I had to retain a lawyer in order to receive information about my child. Also her teacher last year would bring her 3 year old daughter to class on many occasions and ask my child to take her places--instead of doing her schoolwork. This school also charges the kids $1 fee on Fridays if they want to opt out of wearing uniforms. And this same teacher from last year is moving up so that my daughter will have her again. I have always been a big supporter of OKC public schools but I tell everyone I know not to send their kids here.

    The principal of this school is not a very nice person. There are a lot of suspensions and a lot of bullying. I have heard staff members saying bad things about other staff members while I am waiting outside the office to pick up my child. The front office secretary is the most unwelcoming person I have ever met. She always has an attitude! There are a few good teachers that have worked here since my kids have attended but they have all left. I would not recommend sending your child to this school.
