Welcome to Gateway Impact!

At Gateway Impact, we support teachers in infusing their existing practice with non-cognitive, student agency skills – like critical thinking or effective communication – that drive student success both in and out of the classroom.  Watch the video to learn about our mission and model. Explore our website for free online resources, updates about webinars, conferences, residency programs and more!

Gateway Impact is Making Headlines!

The Gateway Impact approach to teaching and learning is the subject of a new case study from the Learning Policy Institute, which documents "how the creation of a positive school climate (at Gateway Schools), along with a full and rich curriculum focused on meaningful learning, has led to improved motivation, sense of belonging, and student achievement that outpaces most similarly situated schools in California." We're delighted to share their findings.

As someone who works with many schools throughout the Bay Area, I am struck by the deep culture of collaboration at Gateway.  The vertical and horizontal alignment in the various content teams keeps the student in the center of the discussion with the goal of reaching autonomy and success.

Gateway teaches students to take an active role in their own success. They help students develop agency, self-advocacy and ownership by equipping them with the strategies they need to learn effectively.
