Pathways College Preparatory School: A College Board School

Grades: 6-12

Students may take classes at Adelphi University

The Downside

Academics have a way to go

Pathways College Preparatory School, serving grades 6-12, shares a building with the Linden Renaissance Middle School 192 in a quiet residential neighborhood in in St. Albans. The school offers college courses onsite and seniors may travel to Adelphi University to take classes for credit. Students graduate with a minimum of 12 college credits, according to the high school directory.

 

Most students enter with weak academic skills, and the graduation rate is below the citywide average. However, attendance is high, and most teachers think Principal Fia Davis is an effective manager with a clear vision for the school, according to school surveys.

The school, opened in 2005, was originally affiliated with the College Board, which administers the SAT and Advanced Placement courses. However, it no longer has that affiliation. (The Department of Education website continues to include the phrase “A College Board School” in the school’s name, but the school’s own website does not.)  

The school offers a range of extracurricular activities like Mock Trial, Step Team, Swimming and Vocal Ensemble. PSAL sports include Double Dutch, Basketball, Track and Volleyball.

Admissions: In recent years, the school has had room for every student who wants to attend. (Melanie Quiroz, web reports and DOE data, September 2018)
