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. 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 some of life’s main principals 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 often times to hear something that will help me remember: “this is just high school; I’ll live.” Among all else, Pathways is a 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 is at the 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.”
