The Gateway Regional School District is a small, rural school system set in the foothills of Western Massachusetts. At over 200 square miles, Gateway is one of the largest school districts in Massachusetts. Gateway consists of two elementary schools, one regional middle school, one regional junior high and one regional high school, serving approximately 1300 students from the towns of Blandford, Chester, Huntington, Middlefield, Montgomery, Russell and Worthington. The schools operate on a total district budget of $18 million, and receive an estimated $1.2 million in additional grant funding each year.
The Middle School, Junior High, High School, and Littleville Elementary School are located on land that once contained a hiding place used by the Underground Railroad. The Gateway Regional School District was named to honor this place, in its role as a "gateway to freedom". The district insignia features a gateway leading to the lamp of knowledge.
Chester Elementary School in nearby Chester and Littleville Elementary School in Huntington serve students in grades K-4. Students in grades 5 and 6 attend Gateway Middle School (in Huntington) then Gateway Junior High School (also in Huntington) for grades 7 and 8. Gateway Regional High School in Huntington serves students in grades 9-12.
