At Gateway Public Schools, we have an important and ambitious objective: to ensure that each and every one of our diverse students has the opportunity to attend college and thrive. Now more than ever, we cannot accomplish this goal without your help.
Volunteers play an important role in Gateway Public Schools. Each day, family members, local college students, and individuals or groups from the community bring fresh perspectives, enthusiasm, and patience into our schools while assisting teachers, staff, and students. They encourage students and inspire them to reach their potential. Additionally, these volunteers experience a sense of fulfillment and pride in helping to improve our schools for everyone in the community. It is a circle of giving that we work to foster in our students, too.
