Pioneer Springs Philosophy


At Pioneer Springs, everything we do is designed to empower students: to grow, to give, to lead, and above all, to live their learning every day. We blend the holistic Basic School approach to core curriculum with a healthy focus on our natural world to engage students’ senses on every level. Because we respect each student as an individual, we foster the development of the whole child: academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and creatively. And by providing authentic, meaningful, hands-on learning experiences every day both in and out of classroom, we tap into students’ intrinsic motivation to learn, while preparing them for a future of lifelong learning, success, and service in an intricately connected world.
