Small Class Sizes
Our intentionally smaller school size ensures students receive the personal attention and care they need to succeed and grow. Our teachers provide the fundamentals for a rigorous academic career and make learning a joy.
Beginning in kindergarten, students enjoy a wide variety of specialist programs including art, music, computers, Spanish and PE.
Safety and Security
The safety of our students is our highest priority. The Gateway Elementary campus is fully locked during school hours, and each classroom is equipped with a lockdown mechanism. Our staff and students are trained in the ALICE method by Kitsap County sheriffs each year.
Spiritual education is fostered through Bible classes, Scripture memorization, and weekly chapels. Biblical principles are integrated throughout curriculum to instill a biblical worldview in students that celebrates the truth that there is a personal God who has created us, loves us and calls us to follow Him.
