What People Are Saying
Students Say :

"Pathways to Technology is a fantastic school; it is culturally rich and a great body of support that is never wavering. Since I have become a student at Pathways, all of my interests have been supported in one way or another. I have been able to excel in the field of technology –an area that I had never attempted to meddle in, at all. I have been able to learn in the same room with students who are from the other side of the world. I have been fortunate enough to attend a school that embodies a few of life’s main principles that I too value: leadership, scholarship, and citizenship. As a student, and an individual, I always have a number of school faculty members that I can go to for life help, school help, and oftentimes to hear something that will help me remember: “this is just high school; I’ll live.” Among all else, Pathways is community of men and women, young and … wise, who value one another’s strengths and insights – it is a tight knit front of idealist, individualist, and innovators who lean on one another for support. Pathways to Technology Magnet High School is a forefront of tech savvy human beings who Wiki and Google by day, and Tweet by night."


Parents Say :

"Pathways is small enough for a parent to communicate with the teachers and administrators about their child’s performance yet large enough in scope to work on projects involving clients and the community."
