Imagine an elementary school where children are reading Shakespeare, communicating in a foreign language, and pondering the mysteries of the universe. Imagine the creativity, the excitement, and thirst for knowledge that kind of environment would inspire.
Now, you don't have to imagine. Premier Arts and Science Charter School is committed to providing such a learning environment. PASCS provides learning opportunities for students using a back-to-basics, phonics-centered approach to learning. With an early introduction to a second language, our students will increase their listening ability, memory, creativity, and critical thinking. Our Socratic Method of teaching will enable students to test the logic and soundness of an idea and begin to fearlessly explore the world around them.
Premier Arts and Science Charter School's commitment to providing a high-quality, world-class elementary education is unwavering.
Beginning as a noble idea in the mind of a growing number of parents, students and the staff of Premier Learning Center, PASCS has become a thriving network of interested and dedicated community groups actively engaged in building a program that reflects a commitment to academic excellence for all students. PASCS has grown from serving 140 students in grades K through 3 in the 2013-2014 school year, to 180 students in grades K through 4 in the 2014-2015 school year, and we are currently serving 220 students in grades K through 5 which started in the 2015-2016 school year.
Fueled by an ambitious growth plan and supported by innovative ideas and creative resources, PASCS's mission remains crystal clear: To provide students with the educational foundation that will develop and enhance superb reasoning skills through the Socratic Method of teaching using a back-to-basics approach to learning and an uncompromising focus on excellence.
We have an exceptional opportunity to change the landscape of an entire community by successfully building a foundation for more elementary school students to be prepared for middle school, high school and eventually, college.
