Education in India is geared up towards imparting and testing knowledge at every level. “Give a person a fish and you feed him one day, teach him how to catch fishes and you feed him for a lifetime.” If you teach a student a skill, you enable him for a lifetime such are the thoughts of Pathway Schools.
Pathways School provides an education that enables the students to fulfill their potential – be it social, intellectual, academic, sporting or cultural. They do so not only because these potentials, fully developed, are useful, economically marketable or aesthetically rewarding but because they also want every single student of their school to find something that they are good at.
The extensive range of activities offered in the school enables all their students to find something that they can excel in. In this way they come to an appreciation of their worth as individuals and gain the self-esteem and self-confidence to which we aspire as the hallmark of our graduates.
They recognize that, in a rapidly changing world, few of their students will follow a single career for the whole of their adult lives. To cope with these career changes they will need flexibility of mind and the intellectual curiosity to continue learning well into adulthood.
They espouse a variety of teaching models in order to produce students who can think critically, synthesise and transform, experiment and create. In short, They aim to equip their students for the 21st Century. The school’s teaching methods are thus far removed from the didactic approaches traditional in many countries.
Pathways is much more than an orderly environment. The school’s disciplinary systems, from the day that students enter the school, aim to make them realise that they must all take the responsibility for their own actions. This realisation is fundamental to bringing their students to a preference for self-discipline over imposed discipline. In an increasingly dysfunctional world, they regard values such as responsibility, honesty, courage, loyalty, tolerance and respect for others as the building blocks of a stable society.
While Pathways draws much of its inspiration from international models, it also embraces the Indian perspective. They try to give their students not only an understanding of their own, or host country, but also a teaches them to value its people, cultural diversity and a willingness to do something for it.
They also seek to encourage amongst the students, an appreciation for India’s immense richness and variety of natural resources, as well as a commitment to their protection and preservation for future generations. Expeditions to more remote areas and community service programmes are intended to break down the isolation created by privilege, exposing their students to a reality outside their own experience, so that they may learn to cope with unexpected difficulties and mature in the process.
Respect for the environment grows out of respect for one’s own person. A comprehensive programme of talks and seminars on personal hygiene, sexuality, drugs and family relationships is held each year at appropriate levels in the school.
Vision: Pathways aims to build and nurture a community of thinking, compassionate world citizens, who are committed to living with responsibility, learning with enthusiasm and balancing a strong work ethos with a sense of play.
It is their mission to ensure that in a safe, tranquil, stimulating and intellectually challenging environment, all students shall have ample opportunity to:
Imbibe universal values;
Identify and fulfill academic, cultural, sporting and social potential through multiple paths to learning;
Acquire habits of curiosity, reflection, mental flexibility, independence and self-discipline;
Attain skills and attitudes for life in a rapidly changing world;
Develop a respect and concern towards the environment;
Maintain openness and respect in the face of racial, cultural, religious and linguistic diversity.
