I think this school is one of best, even among some private schools in the entire state, I don't want to invent anything, just take a look on the academic results.this is my 6th year around the school, I've been involved and really know how things work around here and believe me this is the best school. the one thing I would like to see, is more parent involvement. Great teachers, great leaders, and wonderfull sttaf. thanks to every one who's been part of our kids education. The Juarez family

2Nd review half way into the 2012-2013 school year. I am amazed of what a great school Dekalb Path Academy turned up to be! A few things I like are: 1-This is a very small school with just over 300 students between 5th to 8th grade, there for the teachers pay individual attention to each one of them. 2-They split the children into different levels of knowledge, if the child needs help in certain areas, he is group with children with the same needs and if the child don t need any special attention you can be sure he will be grouped w/children in the same level, so he/she is not hold back. 3- The school is very strict about homework - No child can miss a day s of homework, b/c if they do, they get working lunch. 4- There s no option, parents must be involve w/day to day activities and homework. 5-In order to monitor the parent s involvement and that the child has completed the homework at home, a paycheck must be sign every night, failure to do so, they will deduct points from the paycheck... and much more. In conclusion, yes the school has very strict rules and it s very demanding, but this is what makes a great public school.I'll post a new review by the end of the school year

Good student/teacher ratio, but more involvement with the community needed. Very strong on the math area and has multiple programs established with Georgia Tech

We are Grandparents who raise two middle school Granddaughters beginning when they were in the 5th and 6th grades. The tragedy caused a difficult transition for the girls, but Mr.and Mrs. Cox and all the staff there at Path were so kind, encouraging and nurtured both girls as if they were part of their school family. The girls grades improved from low grades to now B or better and their confidence rose to have hope for a better future and an education that will bring them success on their career path in life, Part of the reason is because of excellent teachers and encouraging staff and the over all atmosphere of the school. We are so thankful and that season of the girls life will be etched on the table of our hearts and their hearts always as a special memory. Thank you Path Academy teachers and staff and students for making your school the very best!! Grandmother Emily

Well..what can I say? This is a great school. Many of the kids here go to private high schools that students from other schools don't even dream of going. The education here is also very good. The kids are set into classes with kids of their same learning pace, so that no student gets left behind. Parents, don't believe what other people say, come see for yourself that PATH really is a great school. If you really want your kids to perservere in life, then enroll them in PATH. Perserverance, Acomplishment, Triumph, Honor.

I love this school. The teachers work hard, the students are kind, the staff and administration want what is best for the kids. We expect a lot from our students behaviorally and academically, but it really pays off. Our students are well prepared for high school when they leave us.

This school is the best school there is! People who think this school is a joke are wrong because they are not the ones going there. PATH provides us students with the excellent education there possibly is. Our school is so diverse.Unlike many public middle schools, students here at PATH can be themselves without feeling discriminated because of who they are. PATH has a top-notch education. PATH opens up a students mind about the world and themselves. The teachers are not teachers but family. They become a huge influence on our life.There are limited activities since it is a small school but students can become a part of PATH instantly. I am an 8th grader here at PATH for 2008-2009 school year and because of PATH, I have gotten into one of the best private schools in GA with a full scholarship! I am going to miss this school so much!

The teachers here are caring and exelent as a student I agree that sometimes the work gets a little to over board but high scholl will seem like a pice of cake with extra frosting. We have one ofthe most lovable principals at our school they are stict but fair judt how it should be.

although we are no longer at the school. I do see the benefits that my child has gained from PATH. Yes the school did lack prpper leadership and the structure that we are customed to in corp america. However, I have seen same system that also lack the same leadership. I was able to step back and place emphasis on the goal; Test scores, reading, math learning etc. in this area the school is rated 10

The 'leadership' at this school is a joke! The principal lacks communication/people skills. My daughter's social studies teacher 'left' on 03/14/2008 and we parents have yet to receive any information regarding this matter! They ignore parents requests for meetings & pick on individual children at will. They had great teachers for the 2007-2008 year, but they left for reason unknown and have been replaced with young & unexperienced teachers.

The school has a good mission nad does teach on a college prep level. However, they lack the proper leadership and teachers who really care about minority children. Teachers don't show proper respect for the parents, so you can imagine the level of respect they provide to the students. Overall I rate the school a 3 on a scale of 1-5

The teachers are well prepared and genuinely care about the students. Due to the small size of the school, not many extracurricular activities are offered. But, students are taught structure and knowledge and are well prepared for the future.
