The Basic School
Pioneer Springs Community School strives to embody the ideas of the late Dr. Ernest L. Boyer, president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, as outlined in his book, The Basic School: A Community for Learning. The Basic School provides a new vision of the role formal education can play in the lives of students; one in which the various languages of learning are used to gain insight into the human experience, and which addresses all aspects of students’ development to prepare them for lifelong learning and success. The touchstone for decision making at Pioneer Springs will always be: “Is this best for children?”
According to The Basic School by Dr. Ernest L. Boyer, there are four building blocks to promote each student’s learning.
HELP PAVE THE WAY…
Help “pave the way” as we continue to grow and build our campus facilities. Please consider making a contribution to the Pioneer Path, a pathway that connects the campus and serves as tangible evidence of our journey as a school.
Click here to order your paver. Your paver can include an engraved message, words, or names to serve as a reminder of your contribution to this community. We challenge every family to sponsor one paver this Fall, to help to continue to grow the programming and campus that make PSCS a place where learning comes naturally.
