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.
JOIN US ON THE PATH...
We invite the community to support our campus expansion by joining us on the Pioneer Path. The Pioneer Path is both the symbolic journey which we are all taking together creating Pioneer Springs, and also the physical path which connects our unique campus. The first pavers will be installed into the path where it all began - at the Croft Schoolhouse.
For your donation of $185 or $325, a personalized paver or brick will be placed on our Pioneer Path in recognition of your support of Pioneer Springs Capital Campaign. Both personal donations or corporate sponsorship's are welcome to cover the cost of your paver.
