About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Pathways to College's test results to learn more about school performance.

Pathways to College Reviews
My three children were transferred from Mariana Elementary to Pathway. When they were tested for grade 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, they all were found an academic year behind what their current grade was. In reading and math, they were even two grades behind. The fact that the classroom's size are much smaller than those in the public schools, helps the relationship between teachers and students to be closer, more helpful in supporting each student's weacknesses by taking care of the students in dedicating more time in following them individually. Time is an important tool in education. When the teachers have less students, they will have more time for the students and their preparation for college.
