Gateways are coming!

At the end of every school year, City High School students create a Gateway presentation to demonstrate their progress on the academic standards and their personal development as it pertains to the school’s mission and our Habits of Heart and Mind. Each grade level has a different critical question that guides their performance, and a successful Gateway is required to move on to the next grade level.

Students in grades 9-11 will be presenting their Gateways Tues. May 22-Fri. 25. Parents or guardians are required to attend their student’s Gateway presentation. To register for a specific time, please visit the link below, click on the name of your student’s Advisor, and schedule a time that works for your family. Note: Gateways are scheduled by Advisor, so you only need to make one reservation with your student’s Advisor. Angela’s Advisory, please select Sean.
