Welcome to Gateway Schools Serving Students with Learning Challenges

History

In 2010, The Gateway School of New York partnered with The Keshavlal V. Bodani Education Foundation to establish The Gateway School of Mumbai. The vision behind this collaboration was to generate learning and spread evidence-based practices, in the field of education and therapies, in India and globally.

The Gateway Schools, New York (USA),was founded in 1965, by a parent and an educator. Together, they laid a foundation of optimism and child-centeredness in this institution that has been making a remarkable difference in the lives of children with learning disabilities and their families for over 55 years.

Who We Are

Founded in 2012, the Gateway School of Mumbai is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to empowering children with disabilities. Together with our students, their families and our community of teachers, professionals and support staff, we work towards our common vision → students will lead fulfilling, productive lives and be active contributors to society.

Gateway was started by a parent of a child with special needs. We believe this collaboration, of parents and professionals, is the cornerstone of our success in working with students with disabilities.
