Why Pathway School of Discovery?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Pathway School of Discovery is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We set high standards, focus on real-world skills, problem solving, and how to be a good citizen. Our exceptional teachers meet students at their ability level and challenge them to go beyond. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"We've been very happy with the communication from teachers and staff, and enjoy the welcoming and safe atmosphere provided for our children." - Pathway School of Discovery Parent

borrowed from a friend.. lol. Here we go: A mother was trying to get her son out of bed for school and he just simply refused. She said, "Give me two good reasons why you don't want to go to school." He replied, "One. The kids hate me. And two, the teachers hate me." The mother said that wasn't any reason to not go to school and began to try and physically get him out of bed. The son was still refusing and whining. Finally, the son said, "Give me two good reasons why I SHOULD go to school." The mother stopped and thought for a second. Finally, she said, "One. You're 52 years old. And two. YOU'RE THE PRINCIPAL!!!"
