The Gateway Program at Reynoldsburg City Schools is a self-contained, comprehensive program currently serving students in 8th grade who are identified as gifted in Superior Cognitive Ability, Reading, Mathematics, Science, and/or Social Studies. The program is housed at Waggoner Road Junior High School.
Beginning in 2017-2018, no new students were admitted to the Gateway Program; however, all students currently enrolled in Gateway are able to continue participating in the program until the completion of their 8th-grade year.
Over time, and with the revision to the Operating Standards for Identifying and Serving Students Who Are Gifted, the Gateway Program has become a model for revising the gifted services across the entire District to ensure that all Reynoldsburg City Schools students who are identified as gifted are able to receive appropriate services and enrichment opportunities.
Parents and students can now find gifted coursework available at all Reynoldsburg middle and junior high schools.
