Gateway Academy's (GA) first priority is the security of your children. While we are located in a relatively safe area on the southernmost part of Staten Island (Tottenville), we still take every precaution possible:
GA staffs armed security guards on its premise during the school week.
GA hallways, stairwells and outdoor grounds are video monitored 24 hours a day.
GA parents and guests are screened by security before entering the building.
GA staff continually conducts fire and lock down drills.
All staff are mandated to conduct rigorous background checks before the start of employment.
