What makes our school different?
On the surface, PCMS is different because the children remain with one teacher for three years in a mixed age class, and that teacher teaches all subjects except PE, art and music. The children spend most of their time working in small cooperative groups, mastering the curriculum. There are many more hands-on materials in the classroom than you might find elsewhere, and the children have free access to them on the shelves. The curriculum is individualized to each child’s ability and performance level. Looking deeper, the school is different because the main emphasis is on the social development of the child. The primary goal is for the child to become an independent learner who treats others with kindness and who acts responsibly in all situations.
Who can attend?
Students from any of the five districts in the collaborative are eligible to apply. That is, students from Jackson, Lake, Plain, North Canton, and Canton City attend our school. Enrollment is based on the number of openings allotted to each school district, and openings are limited.
