Discover The Gateway Regional School District!

The Gateway Regional School District will provide an exemplary education that challenges all students in an instructional setting appropriate to their needs. The primary aim of the district as established by the School Committee and the Superintendent (the governance team) is to support a consistent focus on high student achievement by individualizing instruction to meet the identified needs of each student in the areas of:
  • Academic performance that reaches beyond scores on a standardized test.
  • Preparing for careers and building job skills.
  • Developing and using citizenship skills.
  • Appreciating the performing and visual arts.
  • Developing a sense of personal values and character.
  • Improving personal physical health and safety.
  • Understanding and appreciating the diversity of American society.

In essence we are trying to provide students with the opportunity to become well-rounded, productive, informed, and successful members of society.

We have set up these blogs to address current issues facing the district, and invite everybody to review these items and take part in the ongoing discussions.

Superintendent's Welcome

Gateway is a K-12 district serving students from the seven hilltowns of Blandford, Chester, Huntington, Middlefield, Montgomery, Russell, and Worthington. The district consists of 2 elementary schools (prek-4), a middle school (5/6), a junior high school (7/8) and a high school (9-12) providing educational services to approximately 1,000 students for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year.

The mission of the Gateway School Committee is to ensure that a well-rounded educational experience is available for all children in the school district that will allow each of them to maximize their individual potential so that they may become successful, active, integral members of an ever-changing world. The Committee recognizes that in fulfilling its mission, it must work with all member towns to assure that the needs and concerns of each are addressed.

Our District Vision Statement is that “The Gateway Regional School District will provide an exemplary education that challenges all students in an instructional setting appropriate to their needs.” The primary aim of the district as established by the School Committee and the Superintendent (the governance team) is to ‘Support a consistent focus on high student achievement by individualizing instruction to meet the identified needs of each student in the areas of:
  • Academic performance that reaches beyond scores on a standardized test; Preparing for careers and building job skills; 
  • Developing and using citizenship skills; 
  • Appreciating the performing and visual arts; 
  • Developing a sense of personal values and character; 
  • Improving personal physical health and safety; and 
  • Understanding and appreciating the diversity of American society. 
In essence we are trying to provide students with the opportunity to become well-rounded, productive, informed, and successful members of society.

The district's schools are compliant with handicap accessibility requirements, we have up-dated buildings and equipment, and we are able to provide the technology infrastructure to meet the needs of the 21st century. This investment is paying off with increased opportunities to meet all students' needs including an expanding opportunity for students to earn credits on-line.

Thanks to the support of our communities we have been able to maintain budgetary supports allowing the District to move forward and provide adequate staffing to meet student needs. We continue to work diligently in upgrading our curriculum, in meeting the needs of our students, and improving standardized test scores while trying to become more cost efficient in overall operations.

We are fortunate to have an outstanding and dedicated team of staff members working for the district, a wonderful group of students, and small schools with excellent teacher to student ratios. I am confident that by working together with our communities we can make a positive impact on the future of the district.

I would urge that everyone in our communities take the time to acquaint themselves with our schools and become involved in preparing our children for the challenges that the future holds.
