The Pathfinder School Reviews

I have two children at The Pathfinder School - one very gifted academically, and the other has developmental and learning issues. They master both beautifully and both of my children absolutely love school AND love learning! Example: my learning challenged child was studying the French traders. Teachers organized the two grades and had the lesson by the lake. In a canoe, two teachers come paddling up to the dock and begin to reenact a scene from their textbook (speaking French as well) The children get in costume and assume their roles as traders and the props (furs, goods, etc) are used to facilitate the learning experience. Who can top that??

This school teaches children to love to learn and teaches children how to find the answers to problems without memorizing the answers. The Pathfinder School's graduating class consistently enters high school at the top of their class. This school has given my children the foundation that is going to carry them through high school and college. I can't say enough good things about this school. It is a tuition based school but this is truly a gift we give our children for life-long learning and success.
Our children were in Christian schools prior to coming to The Pathfinder School. Although this school is not a faith based school, the genuine warmth, sincere kindness and sense of community is most certainly a most treasured foundation. Wishing this school went through high school ... such a gift to our children!!
