I'm a student @ Pathways and its a nice school with some great advantages. Some of the things that separate Pathways from public schools are its community involvement, SI rooms (rooms with beds) and lack of bullies.
I currently attend this school. I am 17 years old and have been attending for a wile now, although much of the staff is responsible they are very afraid of discipline. This is where the problems generally start... If a student informs a teacher of an issue hes having they are supposed to inform the principle or a counselor, That being said no teacher wants to report something that could get them or a co worker in trouble. If a student asks to speak to the principle or a counselor themselves the teacher will, without even checking, tell you that they are unavailable. Despite all these things it is a great school for a child who for whatever reason, may not need the educational part of the program. the teachers are very good at dodging subjects that upset students, this also becomes a problem, If a student wants to get a full valuable education they cant. This is because the teachers don't in any way promote participation, If a student wants to leave class there are no questions asked they just leave. I have never heard of such a lack of respect for education. If your considering having your child attend then you should consider does s/he need a content based education or emotional?
I am a current student at CNS/Pathways. It is a good program, with great support from the social worker, team leaders, and other staff. Here's the contact info for the Admissions Director: Faraz M.

We came to Arlington via a disastrous experience at Beacon HS. At Arlington they clearly understand what is like to have a psychiatric illness and they are very supportive to the child and the family around anything relating to the child's condition. Beacon was not so supportive. The academics have been good. They do a good job of keeping the standards high and the work rigorous without putting these kids under unnecessary pressure which can potentially trigger them.
