Curriculum

Gateway Charter School promotes a technique that will yield improved academic results, self -development and character education. Teaching techniques go well beyond Florida Sunshine State Standards' focus into broad levels of skill building. These methods, when combined with traditional instructional strategies, will give our students a strong information foundation and skills repertoire upon which to build their future.

  • CSUSA Core Curriculum - A framework that incorporates the formal performance based Florida Sunshine State Standards.
  • Emphasis on reading, writing, mathematics, the Arts, and technology, as well as foreign language and physical education.
  • Our overall goal is to establish a flexible "open framework" that supports creativity, high standards and a solid academic foundation.
  • The Curriculum encourages steady academic progress as students build their knowledge and skills from one year to the next.
