Assistant Principal's Page

Welcome to Gates Middle School!  Gates is an enthusiastic and supportive community and we are excited for your student to join us.


Educators at Gates use a variety of methods to ensure that they are providing a personalized learning environment for your student.  We use Response to Intervention (RtI) practices to identify and support students with learning and behavioral needs. Through this, teams of teachers develop and implement plans of action to ensure that all students are excelling.  We also partner with the PEAR Institute to survey students and gather important data that helps to inform our educators about each student’s individual social-emotional needs. Additionally, restorative practices are used to improve relationships between students and build a healthy Gates community overall.


Gates staff work closely with parents and caregivers to help guide their work.  There are built in blocks of time during the day for teachers to meet with parents to share essential information.  Back to School Night and Parent Conferences are also important opportunities for parents to be involved. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to a staff member with any question or concern.


Thank you for visiting our webpage.  We look forward to supporting your student over the upcoming years.
