  • welcome






    During the course of the school day, students are not permitted to leave the building/campus without permission. Students may not report to their vehicles during the school day without administrators' permission. If students are caught outside of the building without permission, they will be subject to disciplinary action. Further violations will result in loss of parking privileges at Pathways High School.

    • Leaving for lunch is not permitted.


    The commitment of the Pathways team to provide a safe and nurturing school environment for all students is unwavering. Our utmost priority is to ensure that every student can thrive without encountering negative consequences. To uphold this commitment, we call upon you, as valued members of our learning community, to join us in conveying the importance of appropriate behavior and the potential outcomes should any student engage in unauthorized or harmful activities.

    For your convenience, we have attached the document titled Rights & Responsibilities - AAPS Students, Teachers. Staff, Parents, Guardians. This document outlines the rights and responsibilities of all stakeholders within our school community. By familiarizing yourself with its content, you'll gain a comprehensive understanding of the expectations we have for each student's conduct and engagement. We firmly believe that by working together as a united community, we can foster an environment where students not only excel academically but also develop into responsible, respectful, and considerate individuals.


    Please respect our check-in system at the main entrance desk.  To help us keep track of who is in our schools during the school day, we ask that you present your identification, either a driver’s license or identification card, when you visit the school. Once you have presented your identification for the first time, you will be on the system and will no longer need to present your ID for future visits. This is true for visits to other AAPS schools as well. The system creates a visitor badge for you to wear while you are visiting the school. Please remember to check out at the office or desk where the badge was issued upon completion of your visit. The visitor management system also checks your identification against the national sex offender database.

    The safety of our students and staff is extremely important. Our district policy requires all visitors to buzz in and enter through our main doors and to sign-in at the office. I appreciate staff, parents, and community members’ efforts in working with the school to keep our students and staff safe.

    Studio Time is Not Optional!!

    •  Students should remain at school each day until school lets out at 2:56 PM. Parents and staff please continue to push our students to attend Studio Time M-Th, 2:06-2:56.

    Student and parent/family volunteer COVID cases must be reported to AAPS if the individual was on campus within 48 hours of their symptoms starting or testing positive (if no symptoms). Beginning Monday morning, there are new COVID report forms for families to use when reporting their student’s case and for staff/volunteers:

    Additional Announcements 





    Please remember that all parents, guardians & visitors will be required to show government-issued picture ID at the entrance of our building, including for scheduled appointments.


    The Federal program to provide free breakfasts and lunches for all that was in place over the previous two school years has now ended, and we have been working diligently to get the word out for families to apply for food assistance at school. Families are highly encouraged to apply for Free and Reduced Lunch. 

    The free and reduced lunch application is available on the website, is cell phone friendly and available in five translated languages. The application is straightforward, and we will assist with translators for other languages and with any additional assistance as needed.

     NOTE: All Pathways’ students qualify for free/reduced lunch and, as such, families are encouraged to only complete the Household Information Report (HIR) which can also be found on the link above.

    • RAHS (Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools)  - with newly expanded hours! 
    • On-site child care (see enrollment requirements)
    • Dual enrollment at Washtenaw Community College
    • Internships through Zingermans and through Michigan Rehabilitation Services
    • Ever-expanding relationships with community businesses and resource services.
