Principal’s Message

Dear Grizzly Families,

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!  We would like to extend a big thank you to all the families that have chosen to send their children to our school year after year, and a big welcome to our new families.  Aspire Gateway Academy is proud to serve students with passion, focusing on growing scholars to and through college.  We are committed to providing a rigorous Common Core aligned instructional program, Art, Music, Library, and Science classes, collaboration with family, staff, and community, in a child-centered, technology-enriched, learning environment.  We will also continue to implement Restorative Practices, and teach our scholars that conflict is addressed through dialogue.  We are excited for what the new year holds, and we look forward to working with you as partners in the education of our scholars.

Semi Park
Principal, Aspire Gateway Academy
