Team Alpine

Welcome to the Gateway Alpine Family!

Quotes from 2 Alpine students:

  • Team Alpine is awesome because we have fun as a family of friends.
  • The best thing about Team Alpine is how the teachers teach us.

Team Alpine utilizes a personalized competency-based learning approach to provide all children with opportunities to elevate their skills as lifelong learners and leaders. All 3rd and 4th grade students will

  • be deeply connected to a teacher who serves as their champion, their mentor, their coach.
  • learn to set his/her own academic and personal goals and monitor them with the teacher.
  • have an environment where they will be encouraged to take risks and solve problems.
  • learn through a purposeful selection of instructional strategies and a variety of learning experiences designed to meet their personal learning needs.

Gateway Elementary values helping students develop self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is the belief that one is ultimately in control of one's own life and the development of the accompanying skills to actualize this belief. To this end, each Alpine class works collaboratively to write a classroom goal that is customized for the school's vision and themselves. This goal is supported by a code of cooperation that guides the students' behaviors and growth throughout the year.

Our Alpine team is here to serve you. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information on 3rd and 4th grade at Gateway.
