Lynde K-12 School
Gateway Longview’s Lynde School offers specialized educational services for youth residing on our campus and for up to 105 students ages 5 to 21 who come to us for school during the day. Click here for our downloadable brochure.
Students enrolled thrive best within a high degree of structure, with individualized attention, and with supportive services. Students who attend our day program are referred to Lynde School by their home school district, who initiates an Individual Education Protocol, or IEP.
All students receive highly-structured, individualized academic instruction in self-contained classrooms with up to six students with one certified teacher and one aide. The program seeks to enable students to expand their sense of responsibility, improve their self-control and enhance their abilities to form and maintain appropriate relationships with peers and adults while increasing their academic abilities.
Our goal is for each child to learn the skills necessary to transition to a traditional classroom, or to graduate from high school. Gateway Longview’s Lynde School is on our Main Street Campus, in Williamsville, NY. Our program offers transportation from school districts, a hot lunch program including daily breakfast, and family engagement with school social workers. Additionally, extra curricular activities, such as reading clubs, student council, tutoring, etc., are encouraged to enhance both academic and social/emotional skill development.
We believe in building on a sense of responsibility while working together toward academic goals.

We ensure that all services are client driven with access to early screening and comprehensive assessments.
