Our unique ninth-grade curriculum enables you to explore how your interests fit with career opportunities — and helps you create your own individualized learning Pathway.
Explore the possibilities.
You will take the following Pathways classes:
HUMANITIES and ELD
- In this class, you will build relationships with your fellow students and your advisor that will not only help you feel engaged with your Pathways community, but also develop your social-emotional skills.
PATHWAYS EXPLORATORY CLASS
- This class allows you to gain a hands-on introduction to life after Commerce, with a focus on the following three questions: 1) What do I care about? 2) What am I good at? and 3) What college and career opportunities are out there? In the process, you will learn about in-demand career fields in Springfield.
- Electives include ROTC, PE, Art, Music, and Spanish.
- The WIN (What I Need) Block is an opportunity for you to identify gaps in learning and develop skills in Humanities and Math that will translate to success in your other courses.
Pathways operates on a completely different schedule than the rest of High School of Commerce. You will arrive at school at the same time as students in grades 10-12, but you will leave sometimes earlier and oftentimes later.
There are three different Pathways schedules:
Monday / Tuesday / Thursday
