A Message from Our Principal 

Hello Aviator Families,

Welcome to the 2023–2024 school year here at Gateway Polytechnic Academy. My name is Jeff Markle, and I am the proud principal of this amazing school. As a lifelong educator beginning my 22nd year in the profession, I am driven by four bone-deep beliefs for the students of GPA.

  • Create a safe and respectful environment where we can grow as learners together. Our first basic instinct is safety; without it, we struggle to accomplish many of our day-to-day routines. A building that is safe and inviting will allow our students to free their minds in pursuits of knowledge.
