Pathways Children's School
we teach children everywhere.
We have aligned our curriculum to the New York State Common Core Standards, which provides guidelines for student achievement.The emphasis is on interactive teaching and helping students develop confidence in their thinking as they reach high standards and improve their performance. We expect that the implementation of a school-wide standards based instructional model, the extended day program, after school program, and increased professional development will ensure the achievement of these goals.
Pathways’ principles of practice provide a very detailed and explicit guide as to the expectations of all Pathways’ employees. These principles have been divided into the key areas of focus with the understanding that all expectations are clear and explicit.
As a community of families, we will achieve children's goals by encouraging curriculum activities, which involve critical thinking and encourage students’ discussion and participation. Students discover relationships between topics and subject areas when they are provided with the opportunity to grasp core curriculum. We utilize a balanced literacy approach that integrates writing and reading and focuses on process skills.
