Exemplary Programs
Gateway Lab School’s mission is to provide an individualized, arts-based learning experience in a safe and nurturing environment using innovative approaches to equip students with the tools to achieve excellence and personal growth.

Gateway Lab School is an innovative school of excellence for unique learners that prepares students for life.

The Gateway Lab School (GLS) philosophy is based on the belief that children, who have struggled to achieve academic success in the traditional school environment and learn differently, have the capacity to achieve academic success and to realize individual learning potential. The teachers and staff of Gateway Lab School are committed to developing a sense of inquiry and love of learning in each student. This is accomplished by providing interventions in the areas of reading, oral and written language, math, science, social studies and motor skills with a focus on individualized, arts-integrated learning.

Curriculum Highlights
-Engage NY ELA curriculum- Engage NY pushes students to think critically and analyze high level texts while getting them truly invested in the content. It is a common core aligned curriculum that includes thematic units in which students become fully immersed in a thematic unit.
-Small Group Instruction- During small group instruction, students spend 15-25 minutes in a center or station with 3 to 4 other students focusing on one activity at a time to strengthen and remediate skills.
-Arts Integration- We integrate the arts into our general education curriculum by incorporating dance, movement, drama, visual arts, media, creative writing, play writing, public speaking, sculpting, and singing into thematic units to keep our students invested and engaged in their academic success.
