    Principal's Message

    Welcome to Pathways Elementary School, Home of the Patriots!

    Hello, I am Jason Watson, the proud principal of Pathways Elementary School.  Our school is located in Ormond Beach, Florida.  Our school serves students in grades kindergarten through fifth.  In addition to general education, students at Pathways attend a variety of classes including gifted and exceptional student education.  Our enrollment is approximately 730 students.  Pathways Elementary is considered a high performing school by the state of Florida.  

    The faculty at Pathways Elementary School is second to none!  Our teachers are trained in research based teaching and learning strategies that help our children achieve to their highest potential.  Our teachers exemplify our school motto: “It’s Cool to Care!” with their hard work, and dedication to our students.  The student learning at Pathways goes beyond the classroom walls, as we provide our students with valuable, real-world experiences.  

    The Pathways PTA is a highly organized group of dedicated parents and community members who strive to give our students and teachers what they need to be the best that they can be!  Each school year, the Pathways PTA raises money to sponsor outstanding programs such as after school clubs, curriculum supplements, classroom supplies, and other student programs.  Recently 50 iPads were purchased for student use in the classroom, funded 100% by our PTA!  We are an innovative school community that works to continually implement technology in our classrooms.  

    Pathways has many opportunities for students to experience personalized learning.  Our 12 after-school clubs include running, performing arts, gardening, FFEA (Florida Future Educators of America), and STEM just to name a few.  Our special area schedule includes art, music, PE, technology, STEM, media, and guidance lessons that all students experience.  These options help us to create a well-rounded culture for learning in “Patriot Paradise.”    

    I am looking forward to an excellent school year!  The faculty and staff at Pathways Elementary School are committed to providing every child with the opportunity to belong, learn, and grow.   

    ​The students, staff, parents, and community work together to make Pathways Elementary an outstanding school!

    Best Regards,

    Jason Watson, Principal
