    Breakfast & Where Students Go on Bad Weather Days

    The cafeteria opens at 7:00am for any student wishing to eat breakfast. At 7:45am secondary students are given the option to eat breakfast in the cafeteria or head down to the fields. We have had success with this plan so far in the school year. However, as the seasons change, inclement weather is imminent. We are prepared to address the safety of our students.

    Whenever there is precipitation, or it is below 50 degrees outside, students will be able to enter the learning centers (portables and HS Learning Center) before school. The cafeteria will be the primary shelter from 7am - 7:45am. At 7:45am students will be allowed to enter the learning centers instead of having to wait on the field.

    Also, be aware that pick-up will be a little slower if it is raining. Please be patient and drive safely at the speed limit of 10 mph. We will have staff members help get students to their cars in the safest manner possible.

  • Gateway Earns "A" Grade From TEA

    The Orenda Charter School District, which operates Gateway College Prep, is among the very few Central Texas school districts that received an “A” rating in overall performance by the Texas Education Agency’s new “A-F” grading system that was published August 15th.

    Gateway College Prep enjoyed a “met standard” rating while earning 6 out of 7 distinctions. The one distinction missed was by one indicator, attendance. The school earned an overall score of 95.

    School districts earned an “A” grade by “serving most students well, encouraging high academic achievement and/or appropriate academic growth for almost all students,” according to the TEA website.

    District scores are based on three main indicators: “student achievement,” which is primarily based on standardized test performance and includes other measures like graduation rates for high schools; “school progress,” which compares test performance year-to-year and between comparable school districts; and “closing the gaps,” which includes performances in special groups of students based on socioeconomic status and other factors.

    The only other surrounding independent school district earning an “A” rating was Round Rock ISD. Georgetown, Pflugerville and Leander ISDs all earned a “B” rating.
