This school is the worse thing I ever saw. My students are all ways getting red lights!

We love Pathways! My boys are in Kindergarten and 1st grade and both started at Pathways in Headstart Pre-K. Mrs. Sharpe was the most wonderful person! I couldn't have asked for a better teacher for them. Even now as they are getting older, they both still look forward to going to school every day b/c they love their teachers, friends, and classes. The principal, Mrs. Brimmer is fantastic with the kids and parents. I am honestly surprised that they do not have a higher "GreatSchool" Rating and am quite curious what we can do to improve that...

Im not sure my kids are attending the same school. Yes. Everyone is nice, but they cant get the job done. I have 2 going/gone through that school. Day to day admin is a mess, security is lax; anyone can walk in, academics are shotty at best, when addressed the school board is not truly responsive. There isnt enough characters remaining for me to explain it all. If I were pressed to give this school a rating it would be a D+

I have a special needs child at Pathways. I am a strong advocate for all kids of all abilities and find that Pathways is wonderful in including all kids into their school. The staff at this school truly love your child and make sure each child is getting his/her needs met...they go above and beyond what is expected from a teacher!!!!

I am a parent of 2 children that attend Pathways Elementary. I absolutely love this school. Everyone is warm and friendly but most of all, they all have the best interests of the children at heart at all times, not just when the parent(s) are physically present.

Pathways is all about what is best for the individual child. I have three very different children that attend and each child has received exactly what (s)he needs for growth and success. The principal is wonderful, the classes are fairly small and the environment is soooo warm and friendly. My children feel comfortable and 'special'; which I believe is essential for learning.

This is a school when you drop your child off you have confidence that your child will be receiving the best education in a friendly and safe environment.
