Gateway Elementary is one of four Gateway Christian Schools, a private, Christian school district offering care and education from 12 months through 12th grade on two campuses. Gateway Christian Schools is owned and operated by Gateway Fellowship of Poulsbo, Washington and was established in 1974. The Gateway campus is located on six acres next to Gateway Fellowship in Poulsbo, Washington, and serves families on the Kitsap Peninsula who desire an accredited, Christian education for their children. Gateway Elementary school has a current enrollment of 120 pre-k through 5th grade students.
Admission is based on assessment testing, student transcripts, recommendations from previous teachers, and a family interview. The elementary years are an important time of social and academic development for students.
At Gateway, you will find academic excellence, a caring Christian community and students becoming leaders with integrity.
Our intentionally smaller class size ensures students receive the personal attention and care they need to succeed and grow.
Beginning in kindergarten, students enjoy a wide variety of specialist programs including art, music, computers, Spanish and PE. Our goal is to partner with parents not just in their students` academic endeavors, but also in their spiritual development. Spiritual education is fostered through Bible classes, Scripture memorization, and weekly chapels.
Biblical principles are integrated into all areas of curriculum to instill a biblical worldview in each student that celebrates the truth that there is a personal God who has created us, loves us and calls us to follow Him. Focus is placed on community service and missions work to teach our students about not only the need for basic necessities, but the need for Christ throughout the world.
Our quarterly Character Awards help students learn to emulate and celebrate the character traits of Jesus Christ. For more information, please visit www.GatewayChristianSchools.org.

My four kids have attended GCS over the past 10 years and I can't say enough about this school. The teachers are some of the best around - since the class sizes are so small the teachers really get to know their students. Each child is encouraged to challenge their educationally and be better than humans. I would recommend this to any parent looking for an alternative to public school, smaller classes, strong education opportunities and a family community for not just the students but the parents too!

We are new to the area and have had our child in for a year. It is hard to imagine how a school could get better. The teachers, the administration and the staff are remarkable. You can tell this is a place where there are Christian values. Best choice we could have made.
