    Gateway is a small private school with a very small-minded attitude towards the children and the parents. If you are someone that donates above and beyond the school fees they will treat your child like Prince Charming. If you are not a church member or donor then your child will be treated like he is in the witness protection program and will only get whatever the basics are. I was very disappointed with this school and our child still remembers it as the worst school that he has ever attended. If any of the teachers know your name it will be a miracle.

    Gateway is an excellent school with an incredible academic program. In addition children receive strong moral and christian values that will help them carry themselves for the rest of their lives.

    Gateway is an amazing school and represents what a quality educational program should consist of. Students at Gateway are presented with challenging curriculum christian values and character building. It's amazing that such a small school provides so much!

    Our twins joined the Toddler 2 class this year and they have learned so much in these past few months and have grown (emotionally) as well. Their teachers are wonderful.

    My husband attended Gateway 30 some years ago and we put our son there for Pre-K 3 this year. We have had nothing but a wonderful experience! Our son wakes up every morning asking if there is school today and is sad when there is a day off! All the teachers and staff are very warm loving and caring.

    Our daughter has been at Gateway Christian for 2 years and we couldn't be happier. She is not only getting an excellent education but she is in a loving nuturing ambiance. As parents of three children having one in high school and another in college and our youngest at Gateway Christian the one thing we look for is a school where both us and our daughter are happy and with no pressure. Thank God we found Gateway is just unfortunate that it does not continue through high school.

    My son is in Pre-K3 with Ms. Ivette and I couldn't ask for a more loving and caring teacher. The school is a very warm place. My son loves going to school everyday. We have had a great experience at Gateway.

    My girls have been enrolled at Gateway Christian for four years and it has been an excellent experience and opportunity! The genuine love & concern that the entire staff shows each child that walks the hallways is amazing. The student body is very close knit and enjoy eachother in the many activities that the school and partent volunteer group host throughout the year. Gateway Christian is a blessing to any student and parent. The schools cirriculum is advanced to most schools and the open door policy to parents to visit the school gives you that extra reassurance that the entire staff is willing to assist you in any way. Gateway Christian will always be the best elementary school that I could ask for!

    What a nuturing environment! One of the few schools in Miami where you could walk your child to their class instead of drop-off. Great curriculum and loads of parent involvement. Extraordinary school events...Tree Lighting Ceremony for Christmas Pumpkin Patch Movie Night Easter Eggstravaganza Birthday Blessings and so much more.

    Both my kids went to gatweay and they to this day still talk about it and how wonderful the teachers and the learning experience they had there was. I assisted as a room mother and eventually as a teacher's assistant and the advanced reading skills my children learned was amazing. They built friendships that will last a lifetime and the memories they made there will be with them forever

    Gateway is a very family oriented school and still does not forget the importance of education. It uses the a very intensive program so that even my five year old can already read a small book. And my six year old can read grown up novels. Gateway is like an amazing school one has to go believe it. The teachers are like your family they really want to help you and they really care for the children. I would recommend this school to anyone who really cared for their children's education.

    Gateway is a wonderful small little school that has been a great blessing to our family. We are proud of the education and spiritual growth our family has received from the school staff and the office staff. If it were not for the dedication of the hard working teachers thier assistants the front office staff as well as the hard working parents Gateway would not be a success.

    I am the parent of a former student as well as a former teacher's aid of Gateway Christian School. My child learned so much in that school. She started going to Gateway when she was only 3 years old. Not only were they great acamedically but the nurturing genuine concern and love the teachers had for their students is undescribable. As a parent I saw the work and dedication of the teachers towards the students. Later on I became part of the staff and saw first hand all the hard work and long hours that every employee put into everything that was done for every child. They were not only concerned with the child but with the child's family as well. We love Gateway Christian School.
