About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Caldwell County Gateway School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Caldwell County Gateway School Reviews
As a previous student, this school helped me when my life got turned around. It gave me the chance to get my head on straight and make the choices I needed to make. While some students might not get along with the staff, thats a choice. All of the staff from the principal to the teachers and even to the school resource officer were more than willing to offer support if a student needed it. They definitely helped me in making an opportunity to start over.
It helped my child, she attended regularly, grades improved, attitude improved at home, she even enjoyed it.
