Orenda Charter School District, with its five total campuses in Central Texas, received an “A” rating in overall performance by the Texas Education Agency’s new “A-F” grading system initiated this year.
Locally, Gateway College Prep School, a K-12 school campus serving more than 1,300 students, earned a “Met Standard” rating while earning six out of seven “distinctions.” The school earned an overall score of 95. Gateway Tech High School, also operating in Georgetown, offers a daily, 4-hour blended learning academic program for grades 9-12 only. That school earned a “Met Alternative Standard” with an overall score of 92.
Gateway Prep is currently undergoing an $18.5 million construction project that will include a combined Elementary/Middle School Learning Center with new science labs and collaborative learning space, and a 19,000-square foot Main Gymnasium along with a courtyard connecting all buildings. The project is expected to be completed by January. The school is entering its 10th year of operation.
