Principal's Corner

  • Dear Gateway MST Middle Families:

     I hope that each of you are having a wonderful and safe summer. My name is Nakia King and I am the new building principal of Gateway MST Middle School. I am excited to get to know each one of you as we work together to take Gateway MST Middle from good to great! Middle School is such a critical time in our students’ lives so it is very important that we have a close relationship between school and home to ensure we have everything in place for student success. In order to ensure our students are successful attendance is key. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 17, 2016. The school day is from 8:05a – 3:02p. Please know that my door, my email, and my phone are always available for any of your thoughts or concerns.

     We hope that everyone can attend this year’s registration sessions in the cafeteria at Gateway Middle. Registration/schedule pick up is as follows:

    * 8th grade - August 9th from 3:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.

    * 7th grade - August 10th from 3:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.

    * 6th grade - August 11th from 3:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.

    * Make up day- Monday, August 15th from 10 A.M. – 2:00 P.M.

    The student and his/her parents/guardians are asked to attend either of these schedule pickup days. During this time families will turn in important forms and pick up their schedule. Students will not be allowed to enter the building without an adult.

    During Schedule Pickup you and your student will:

    * Receive a district calendar with important dates

    * Return Completed Student Agreement Forms(*the parent information sheet may also be completed online)

    * Student Information Sheet

    * Family Community Specialist Needs Assessment Survey

    * PTO Sign Up Forms

    * Verify Immunizations

    * Sign up for the SISK12 to allow parents to access their student’s grades and attendance.

    * Once the above steps are complete then you will pick up your schedule.

    I am looking forward with great anticipation to seeing you at one of the registration days and to the start of the new school year on August 17th at 8:05 A.M. If prior to that time we can be of assistance to you, please contact the school at (314) 241-2295.

    Enjoy the rest of the summer!

School Data

  • Coming soon!


  • New Vaccination Required!


    Before our 7th grade and 11th grade students start 8th and 12th grade (respectively) in 2016-17, they must receive a vaccine against meningitis, an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. 


    Students entering 8th grade must also receive the Tdap vaccine, so parents can get them done during the same visit to the doctor. If your student going into the 12th grade received the first meningitis immunization at age 16 or later, a second one will not be needed. Otherwise, two are required for 12th grade students. Please have this immunization done as soon as possible, and make sure your School Nurse receives a copy. Please contact your School Nurse or the Nurse Coordinator at 314-345-4401 for questions.

  • Civil Rights Trip, Day 5

    We are about to leave Selma.  We walked the same path that peaceful protesters marched in 1965 when they were beaten by Alabama state troopers just across the Edmund Pettus Bridge on "Bloody Sunday."  We also had an incredible visit to the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute.

  • Civil Rights Trip, Day 4

    Yesterday afternoon, at the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, we had the incredible privilege of meeting with Mr. Anthony Ray Hinton.  Mr. Hinton spent 30 years on death row for a crime that he did not commit.  He taught us a great deal about systemic racism and delivered a very powerful message.  In spite of everything, he said: "I hold no hatred and no hard feelings towards the people who did this to me.  I forgive them, even though they've never sought my forgiveness."

    We visited the King Memorial Dexter Avenue Baptist Church this morning and will visit the Parsonage this afternoon.  We will also visit the Freedom Rides Museum and the Rosa Parks Museum.  Tomorrow, we will travel to Selma.

  • Civil Rights Trip, Day 3

    We left Birmingham very early this morning and traveled to Wetumpka, Alabama.  We visited the Elmore County Black History Museum, which is located in one of the few remaining Rosenwald Schools.  Please see the attached picture!

    Right now, we are visiting the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site.  This afternoon, we will visit Tuskegee University, the home of Booker T. Washington, and the George Washington Carver Museum.  Then, we will travel to Montgomery.  We will meet with the outstanding attorneys at the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery at 4:00 this afternoon.

  • Civil Rights Trip, Day 2

    We had a great day in Birmingham!  We visited Kelly Ingram Park, the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.  We met with Mr. Doug Jones, the former United States Attorney in Birmingham who served as the lead trial attorney in the successful prosecution of two of the men responsible for the murder of four young girls at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in 1963.  We also met with Chief Johnnie Johnson and Deputy Chief Leroy Stover.  Both men are retired from the Birmingham Police Department.  Chief Stover was the first African-American police officer in Birmingham, and Chief Johnson was the second African-American police officer in Birmingham.  Both men rose all the way to deputy chiefs, and Chief Johnson became the first African-American police chief in the city of Birmingham in 1991.

  • Civil Rights Trip, Day 1

    We are currently on our way to Scottsboro from Nashville.  We had an incredible visit to the Civil Rights Collection at the Nashville Public Library where we met with Dr. Rip Patton, a former Freedom Rider.  Dr. Patton inspired our students to think about the kind of change they would like to make and to think about the role they would like to play in order to make the world a better place.
