The teachers have been great and the childrens behavior seems to be pretty under control!
Pathways is AMAZING! They, and I mean the from the principal down to the cafeteria staff, treat each child as an individual and gives them the beneit of the doubt to be responsible and mature, and also to do the right thing. The staff uses positive reinforcement to help struggling students and also incentives for the students to grow, leaving NO student feeling left out. I have a child in the 1-2 gifted and a child in 5th grade and they LOVE it!! They come home everyday happy and excited to do our evening routine (ie HW dinner, any practices they may have for that day bath bed) so they can get to school the next day, The ONLY and I mean only downfall is that we live in daytona beach so their bus ride is 45 min. however the commute is well worth it considering they were in Westside last yr and had a third grade GIRL bullying and threatening as well in the bathroom and threatened my kids not to tell, this was not an isolated incident and it really took away from my children focusing on academics. Pathways is the BEST for anyone looking into school districts when purchasing a home. I think the only only improvement they could make is not offering so many unhealthy snack at lunch :)
The principal is a very uneducated man. the staff and teachers dress poorly and seem to make fun of some children. they seem to be the.bully in the schools.and.allow.the.other children to do the same. my child will not return to the school and neither should yours.
This is a wonderful school!! The staff is wonderful!!! The teachers are wonderful!!! My children love their school!!! I know that my children are getting a great education because of the people who work here.
This school and it's principal, as well as the teachers I have dealt with are a joke. The principal is undereducated and has no business interacting with students. The teachers seem burnt out and the classes are messy. They are very clique oriented and have been known to make fun of students. Do your children and yourself a favor and send them somewhere that they will be able to learn and grow.
Our daughter attended Pathways for elementary and loved her teacher Mrs. Dalton. Mrs. Dalton is probably the best K teacher in the state and our daughter was excited every day to go to school. The education was fantastic and art and PE were great. The only complaint that I have was regarding lunch time. It seems like the kids were left on their own during lunch and tended to get a bit out of control. A few more lunch attendants could solve that probem. Other than that, excellent school.
Our Son Daniel attends Pathways Elementary School. He is finishing up kindergarten and has Ms. Dalton as his teacher. Ms. Dalton is a nurturing and loving teacher and I truly believe brings out the best in her students. Our son loves going to Pathways and learning something new every day. Daniel loves Gym and art classes as well. All of the staff for that matter are very nice and helpful!
i go to pathways and i love it it is so awesome im in the fith grade and i have gone there since kindergarten and i have always loved it
Teachers should teach not play or or kiss friends for whatever they want TEACH TEACH TEACH. This is why parents pay taxes and most children have become HOME SCHOOLED. Principal step up to the plate no kid lrft behind
Principal was lazy and unavalble when in need and the academic programs terrilbe i feel as if my daughter has not learned anything new at all and teacher yelled and degrated students and when asking help from asst principal she got in childs face and tried to scare her into saying that everything is okj
Everyone is warm and welcoming and i truly feel safe sending my kindergarten student there!
Pathway Elementary School is one of the nest in Ormond Area..I have 2 sons enrolled there right now.I could not ask for more in terms of educational abilities of this school..teachers are awesome..they will really communicate w us parents should there be a problem..The office treats u loke a family too.Of course the school principal has very strong leadership and always visible..
This school is the best kept secret in Ormond Beach. The front office staff is wonderful and the teachers are the best around. I have nothing but positive things to say about Pathways.
I just want to say thank you to Miss Ruth She was such a big help at getting my niece enrolled in school i couldnt have asked for a better person.
There a few nice things about this school - the fall festival, oldies dance, field trips, etc. that were outstanding. But, you have a Principal who acts like he doesn't even know you (even if he does), you have a few teachers who should not be teaching children, there is an after school program where the children are screamed at. There is way too much concern on the FCAT and upsetting the children, and not on the basics - which is what elementary school is all about.
This is my sons first year at Pathways. The school is great and Ms. Higgs is a wonderful, caring teacher. I spend alot of time in the classroom and she is great with the kids. I am very pleased that my son had Ms. Higgs for his first year of school. I look forward to meeting more of the teachers through out my sons years at Pathways.
I'd like to thank the teachers and staff would continually strive to improve our school. Participating in SAC helped me to understand everything that goes into running a school I can't think of any place I'd rather have my children.
I believe my child had a wonderful first year,last year.He had a wonderful teacher.My son loved to be there,and I just wanna say I'm thankful that there are teachers who really do care about the students,and how much they learn.Thank you pathways,for all your kindness,and support.
I am a working mother who volunteered when possible at this school. Unfortunately there are many parents that can't stay 100% involved but would like to. The teachers are wonderful and will make great efforts through letters, emails, phone calls, and meetings to keep these parents in tuned with their child's progress throughout the year. I thank the principal, teachers, and staff who care about our children's success.
