Being a part of the Pathfinder faculty has been a true community experience. I love that the students, parents and teachers create an environment that is welcoming and promotes discovery and exploration. Our campus provides us with a hands-on natural classroom on a daily basis and a curriculum that inspires creativity in children.
Our mission is to discover and develop each student's individual abilities by investing in a community of families and teachers in which serious study flourishes alongside creativity, responsibility and enthusiasm. At Pathfinder, children feel safe to be themselves, think independently, work cooperatively, become avid learners and strive to make a difference in the lives of others. This mission statement says it all except for the integration of nature in teaching the children. I have found no other school in the area that can compete in this regard. 22-acre campus utilized routinely by all teachers.
There is no other school in Northern Michigan like Pathfinder! Our Daughter is thriving there. The arts integrated education is the best method of teaching. The students love going to school. The school is an experience unlike any other your child could have in the academic lives. Children who graduate from Pathfinder have the highest test scores later in life. I highly recommend this school.
