Serving Pre-K – 3rd grade for 2023-2024
Western Gateway Elementary
Western Gateway Elementary is a bilingual neighborhood school and a new kind of learning experience.
Oklahoma City’s First Bilingual & Cross-Cultural School
Our students learn through a bilingual curriculum and become part of a welcoming and diverse community. Los Osos (The Bears) will grow into more culturally well-rounded learners who are equipped to take on all the opportunities of life!
We create a learning experience that values children, language, culture, and community. We challenge our students to learn, grow, give back to our world – and be confident explorers in life. We invite your family to be part of our school family. Click here for FAQs.
We serve our surrounding neighborhoods first. If you live in one of our neighborhoods: College Hill, Higgins Heights, Jones Grove, Wheeler District, or Will Rogers Courts, all you have to do is enroll! Check out the boundary map.
Been offered a seat?
If your student(s) have been offered a seat at Western Gateway Elementary School, enrollment packets are due March 11.
Bilingual Learning Experience
We offer a dual-language education path for our students at Western Gateway. It is an immersive experience, where students become bilingual and bi-literate, as they progress through their elementary grade levels. Together, classmates will learn to speak, learn, and write in two languages: English and Spanish. Students learn about others cultures and languages through everyday experiences and conversational Spanish.
All our students will grow in confidence, creativity, and competency as they learn about their world – and as they develop a sense of community and belonging here at home, at Western Gateway Elementary.
