Gateway will use the award to continue to fund a 9th grade seminar to help students adjust to high school and learn organizational skills, note-taking and drug and alcohol awareness. Gateway first received this award four years ago. The school's graduating class, which was the first to take the 9th grade seminar funded by this grant, has had the greatest retention rate with 116 students scheduled to graduate. This award is part of an overall $250 million initiative sponsored by AT&T.
