Mission Statement
St. Mary Gate of Heaven's mission is to educate students, according to high academic standards, in a safe, nurturing environment that reflects the love of Jesus Christ. We encourage the development of students' personal dignity, moral character, love of learning, and sense of responsibility. Acknowledging that parents are children's primary educators, St Mary Gate of Heaven's faculty and staff, cooperate with both parents and students, to guide each child towards the realization of his/her full spiritual, academic, personal, and physical potential.

Vision Statement

St. Mary Gate of Heaven School will continue to be a dynamic witness of the Gospel and lead others to embrace the love of God. We strive to provide an innovative learning environment with a strong moral foundation to prepare our students to reach their full potential, aspire to be life long learners, and become valuable contributors to society.

PHILOSOPHY

Since 1904 St. Mary Gate of Heaven School has been serving the Queens Community. Started by the Daughters of Wisdom and the Montfort Fathers in Ozone Park, we continue to follow the tenets set forth by our founders. Our goal is to provide the children of Ozone Park and surrounding communities with an environment in which to grow as whole persons; spiritually, mentally, and physically in a Catholic context modeled on Christ’s teachings. Children of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome. The diversity of cultures and religions allows for the exploration and the understanding of the needs of our students. We believe each child is special and unique. St. Mary Gate of Heaven is a learning community that focuses on teaching and guiding each child individually, with the help of the parents who are a child’s primary teachers. With the grace of the Holy Spirit we will continue to be a beacon of light for our students and their families.
