Pathways is an alternative approach to the learning environment. Traditionally, a school year was based on a specific number of days and hours that students are required to be in the building. The Pathways program has proven that a focus on demonstration of knowledge and proficiency is a better measure of outcomes than how many hours a student is in a building. We allow for scheduling flexibility and focus on student progress through the curriculum without the constraints of the traditional seat time requirements, in exchange for more accountability for demonstrated learning.

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
