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.
