A year ago we shifted from Bangalore to Noida and I was looking out for a good IB school (International Baccalaureate) My son had been studying IB in Bangalore. Also Pathways school year starts in August and no other school would give us admission in the middle of the term. So I went and met this admission person Ms. Monica. At first it all seemed nice, however i soon realised that a lot of incorrct information was being given to me. Since my son was already studying in an IB school, i was familiar with the way of teaching, but what the admission person was telling me was totally different. Then i met the junior school principal. She is very knowledgable and i was happy to see her vision for the kids. Eventually we did not go ahead with Pathways because we could see no blend between the staff. it is important for a school to have a common vision, a common goal. Then the children also become more focused and clear. But in my initial interaction i saw so much of confusion and mismatch, I didn't want to take the risk.

We were looking for a good school with IB and this seemed to be the only school in NOIDA which claimed to be fully IB based.
However reality is very different. Do not be fooled by the big claims that they make on their website and in their advertisements.
Their only aim is to be able to extract maximum money out of parents. They will try to scare them and make them believe that the kids need additional counselling so that they can charge additional money for counseller who are ill qualified at best. ( This seems to be on similar patteran the same as in their Gurgaon Branch -- see review on this website ).
My Son, who is extremely intelligent ( with a high IQ ) was projected by them as a student with learning disability. He has undergone tests by leading doctors and psychologists, who have declared him to be free from any learining disabilities.
On speaking to some of their current and Ex faculties ( in private ) we came to know that they are only interested in kids from families who have pots of money and no time for their children so that they can have an easy life while the which the school can milk their money. They strongly advised against admitting children of non business families in Pathways as the focus is on Money making rather than Education.
Wonder how they got IB certification ?
