Glacier Gateway's Mission

Our School

At Glacier Gateway, we are committed to creating a rich, welcoming, and safe environment that promotes student growth. We share information about our programs, student activities, and student achievements throughout the pages of this web site. We invite you to stop by Glacier Gateway for a visit.

Glacier Gateway is located just north of Highway 2 on 4th Ave. West in Columbia Falls, Montana. You can find us by turning north at the second of four stop lights on Highway 2 in Columbia Falls as you drive west through town. We are located in a long brick building housing about 450 students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.

Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.
