From the school director
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
"Pathways believes in delivering quality and excellence in education, paving the path to IB continuum learning for its students. Our endeavour is to empower our students to think intensively and critically, while being morally upright. We stress upon developing analytical skills while tickling the students’ curiosity and ability to solve complex problems.
"Superiority in education rests on four pillars; students, staff, infrastructure, and facilities. Supremacy does not come only with students who are eager to learn and explore, or a state-of-the-art infrastructure, or world-class facilities. It also requires the nurturing care of staff dedicated in giving nothing but ‘excellence’. We make every effort to ensure in building and retaining an experienced, balanced and articulate team that is focused to help students to be the best versions of themselves. Our teachers help build a strong foundation for their students by preparing them to embrace life with positivity through focus on their determination and will to learn.
"The vibrancy of our programmes brings about the best in our students through the 10 attributes of the IB Learner Profile that form the core of the Pathways vision and mission, also encompassing the essence of life in school – play. We expect our students to explore and focus on sustainable development goals and share their learning experiences with students across the globe. These goals, also interwoven in our curriculum, help students in collaborating globally thereby promoting global citizenship. Our learning methodologies are entwined around the learner profile and the objectives of the SDGs, bringing out sensitive, responsible and compassionate world citizens. Our students are enthusiastic and committed to learn amidst a diverse and intellectually challenging environment.
"At Pathways, students and staff get ample opportunities and exposure to learn to train their mind and heart, while staying grounded to their roots!"
– Ms Sonya Ghandy Mehta, School Director, Pathways World School
