Employer Description
 
For over 50 years, The Gateway School has transformed the lives of bright children who experience academic difficulty as a result of language-based learning disabilities (e.g., dyslexia, reading and writing disorders), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), executive function disorder, or auditory processing difficulties. Located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Gateway enrolls approximately 160 students between the ages of 5-14. In small classes with a low student-to-teacher ratio, faculty and therapists meet students where they are, individualize instruction accordingly, and develop them into skilled, strategic, independent learners who are capable of advocating for themselves and who are prepared to transition into mainstream school and life.

Diversity Mission Statement
 
The Gateway School’s mission is to transform the lives of bright students with language based learning disabilities and attention deficits. We believe it is necessary for our students to be fully prepared as responsible citizens for the world beyond Gateway. This includes social and emotional growth within a diverse, inclusive, and equitable setting. We welcome and actively support a community which includes but is not limited to diverse racial and ethnic identities, religions, sexual orientations, socioeconomic status, family composition, abilities, ages, and gender identities. We are committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging in our community, while recognizing this is an ever-evolving topic. Ultimately, we strive to build a safe, respectful, responsive culture, as well as a community that is grounded in connection and understanding, with an appreciation of and the opportunity to learn from our differences.
