My son went to school here for 2 years, it was a horrible experience. Even 2 of his teachers told me he was too bright to be in this school and to get him out of there. He was constantly picked on because he was smart. He got in a verbal altercation with a classmate and I was never informed. Instead they made my son sign something that said if they got into a physical altercation they BOTH would be suspended. He told one of his teachers he wanted to go to MIT, she told him, "be more realistic". Mind you my son left that school on the honor roll! The hallways smell like a dirty bathroom. My son wouldn't use the bathroom in the school at all. If they want to send your child there, fight tooth and nail to get them sent somewhere else!
My two sons went to Pathways College even though they have had thier ups and downs like many new schools, many of the first gradating class entered college something I never thought my son would do, two years later I enrolled my scond son into pathways a decision I did not regret as he was given so many opportunities to develop himself including doing two college programms one at Quuens College and another at Adelphi University. This school and its programmes and teachers have helped my sons grown into fine individuals attending college. Thank You Pathways.
When my child first went to this school it was great. The change in the school's Administration has affected the quality of all the activities at the school - teaching, student/teacher interaction etc., in the lower school. Only a few teachers make the environment conducive to learning. I see this school on the way to closing soon.
Unfortunately, bullying reigns supreme at Pathways. Students are picked on for any ole reason and safety is often an issue although the school s administration refuses to acknowledge this fact. For safety reasons teacher will not get involved; can t say I blame them. Where is security? Are they doing an adequate enough job??? Teachers disrespect students, but expect the utmost respect from students. RESPECT begets RESPECT. There are teachers who will outright state I m only here for my paycheck. I don t care if you pass or fail. The Department of Education should have a report card for teachers. Any teacher with a percentage of failing students should not be allowed to continue teaching, especially when combined with the statement aforementioned. The Pathways mission is not being upheld. The potential for high achievement overall exists because a B grade is not outstanding no siree!
This school is acceptable for a student in junior high school, but for a student in high school this school is very unacceptable. The school is only a floor and 3 quarters of a school building. We need more room and more extra curricular activities.
This is a wonderful school full of talented, caring teachers. It is a small school where students get plenty of individual attention.
im a junior at pathways and have been going here since freshmen year. This school is extremely small but the students here use this to their advantage. The realtionship between students and teachers are very good and everyonen knows each other and for the most part everyone gets along.
This school for my child is okay, however I sometimes think since this school is very small, That my child wouldn't have the high school experience I desired for her. But, Overall this school is okay.
This school was a bad experience for my child. I had to take her out. The Principal was very inexperienced. The teachers were not prepared and report cards were oftne not prepared on time.I would not recommend thisschool to anyone.
