Gateway High School is a charter school located in San Francisco, California. It was founded in September 1998. For many years it resided in the Sunset District at Laguna Honda before moving to its permanent location, at the corner of Geary and Scott, in the building that formerly housed Benjamin Franklin Middle School. The building is also shared with the KIPP SF Bay Academy,[2] a 5-8th grade charter school.

Gateway focuses on small class sizes, high standards, and a close student-to-faculty relationship. The school has been designated as a California Distinguished School and as a 21st Century School of Distinction. It has also been officially nominated by the United States Department of Education recently in December 2006 as one of eight acclaimed charter schools in the nation and the third highest ranked public school in San Francisco,[3] and in June 2009, Newsweek ranked it as one of "America's Top Public High Schools" [1].
