We had a fabulous kindergarten teacher and couldn't be happier. The principal doesn't just sit in his office, he is very involved with helping and interacting with the students, teachers, and parents.

Pathfinder is a A+ School. The teachers are kind and wonderful. The principal is extremely involved in every aspect of the school and knows every child by name and is very kind and humble. He takes parents request seriously and does follow up. My older daughter just "graduated" from Pathfinder and moved to Barry and now my little goes to Kindergarten. My older child is very shy but her teachers worked really hard to have a connection with her and the results are happy and creative child!

Amazing school, one that goes above and beyond the classroom to help your student be successful.

The best effort given by teachers than any elementary school in Kansas City, to educate the children with little to no cooperation from the parents.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
