This school has been an absolute ideal placement for our son for several years now transitioning from the end of elementary through middle and now about to graduate! I can't even imagine where we might be had it not been for Pathway honestly, given where we were before he started. If you have a child with difficult placement needs, this is the place. Some schools are useful where there isn't the need for Autism Spectrum Support and there are great schools for Dyslexia or Behavior Support, but for those with specific issues that require a trained or licensed team of professionals who care and offer a well rounded, equal opportunity at a typical education in a setting that best resembles a home school, this is what they may have received but without feeling marginalized. Here, they fit in and feel part of it all. They blossom and recover. They discover themselves and they grow and mature while learning at the level they need to at their pace. Some may goes on to return to their home school but I can say without a doubt, this school has not one time left any doubt that we made the right choice for our son. He may have missed some of what typical kids experience in a "normal" school setting, but given the challenges he has had, that is ok. He has his whole life to experience "normal" now, better prepared, with much less anxiety, more prepared and in a positive state of mind about what he is capable of. That is what this school provided him.
