For over 50 years, The Gateway School has transformed the lives of children who have experienced academic difficulty as a result of a language-based learning disability (dyslexia, reading and writing disorders), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), executive function disorder, visual-spatial or auditory processing difficulties, and/or gross and fine motor coordination issues. Located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Gateway enrolls 160 students between the ages of 5-14 in a Lower School and Middle School. 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.
