South of Colombo lies one of Gateway’s youngest schools, Gateway College Dehiwala. Established in 2013 as the result of a merger between Gateway College Bambalapitiya and American International School, the school caters to the needs of students from Playgroup to Advanced Level.

Beyond the bounds of the classroom, students embrace more than just academic studies. Equipped with modern infrastructure, the school houses a state-of-the-art auditorium, an indoor basketball court, a swimming pool, an innovation studio, and a Math Lab.
