Theme Manifestation: The primary theme for Pathways to Technology is broadly defined as anything technology related. All classrooms are outfitted with smartboards, and teachers are highly trained in their areas of expertise. Courses revolve around three specialized areas Multimedia, Business Technology, and Computer Science and provide opportunities for certification in Microsoft Office, Cisco Certified Network Administration, web design and more. Pathways maintains an Industry Advisory Board made up of representatives from area businesses, who are tasked with providing input into current trends in the field of technology and how to incorporate these trends into classroom curricula. The school s vision is for students to acquire the technological and critical thinking skills to become fully active participants in our global society.

I just graduated from Pathways and I have to say that it was an amazing experience. I do not regret going to Pathways and really enjoyed all four years there. The technology and great curriculum lead me to study computer science in college. Pathways is an awesome school worth checking out.

My child is a 9th grader at pathways being bussed in from one of the surburban towns in the surrrounding area. And while I am pleased at what Pathways has to offer academiclly. However there is much to be improved in way of office administration. Right now the school does not have a principal and there is a level of concern for the lack of professionalisim and mutual respect in the way that the children are spoken to.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CAPT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
