Community Service

Advocating for our Community

Each year, all Gateway High School students participate in a day-long service project with their advisory. Students design and plan their own community service project in order to build a real connection between students and the social need they are working to address.

Community Service Enables our Students to:

  • Believe in the importance of helping others and the environment.

  • Learn to embrace, and have compassion for, human diversity.

  • Take pride in being conscientious members of the global community.
