Pioneer Springs expands school

July 15. Pioneer Springs Community School has purchased a neighboring property in historic Croft, expanding the current campus by 5.5 acres. The new site, located at 9300 Bob Beatty Road in Charlotte, features an existing facility with over 5,000 square feet, outdoor shelters, wooded areas and a pond.

Pioneer Springs has two historic properties: Croft Schoolhouse and the Davis House as well as a renovated barn, all now utilized for classrooms. The Croft Schoolhouse established in 1890 served the community until the 1930s, and the Davis House is a Queen Anne style farmhouse built in 1903 by the Davis family. Both properties are historic landmarks.

Pioneer Springs Community School is a nature­-based charter school that prides itself on learning opportunities arising spontaneously in nature.

Pioneer Springs recently completed its second year as a free, public, charter school. In the 2016­-17 school year Pioneer Springs will serve grades K­-5, adding a consecutive grade each year thereafter.
