Why Choose Northside Urban Pathways?
About Charter Schools:
Charter schools are a new kind of public school authorized by the state legislature in 1997. Charter schools do not charge tuition and are non-sectarian. Parents who feel that their child would benefit from the program offered at a charter school may enroll their child at a charter school at no cost. A charter school must receive the approval of the Pittsburgh Board of Education before it can open. Northside Urban Pathways Charter School was granted approval on February 25, 1998. The Charter was re-issued again in 2003.
An Individual Plan for Every Student:
Every student will have a personal education plan developed and closely monitored by a team that includes the student, parents or other supportive adults, and a teacher/advisor. Students work will be kept in portfolios.
Clear Standards and Requirements:
Every child knows what is expected, what progress has been made, and what remains to be achieved. Every graduate will have competency in core academic areas, a plan for what happens after graduation, and a developed network of community and family support that will encourage and demand success with that plan.
Exciting Learning Opportunities:
Students at Northside Urban Pathways learn through a combination of individualized practice and basic skills, theme-based courses, small group projects, and community-based shadowing and internship experiences. The end result of this variety is an engaging experience that makes students like school.
Access to the City Environment:
We prepare graduates to be successful in the city environment. We do this by using the city environment as a source for learning themes that both engage our students and allow them to understand the excellence and richness that already surrounds them. In addition, through close partnerships with the community and its institutions, we help students develop a support network that will enhance their chances for success after graduation.
Northside Urban Pathways Charter School selects its own teachers. We choose teachers who are personally committed to the success of our students and who have the professional talents and skills needed to get them there.
