Leading the Way in Education
The Pueblo School for Arts and Sciences has developed a curriculum with the "Whole Student" in mind. Whether in the classroom working with tomorrow's technology or in the community leaving their mark, our students are becoming the leaders of tomorrow. With flagship programs like After School Enrichment and Empty Bowls; our students engage in a one of a kind environment that allows for learning to evolve outside of traditional lectures. Our approach to teaching within the schools is truly based on our core curriculum giving students an edge as they move forward in their development. Our staff exemplifies what it means to be a "Lifelong Learner" by exploring, and use of cross-integration of subjects within the core curriculum. By our integration of humanities classes beginning in kindergarten, our students have early access to Technology, Art, Spanish, Physical Education, Choir, and Instrumental.
After School Enrichment
In the Fall of 1995 the Pueblo School For Arts and Sciences was the 3rd charter school to open in the state of Colorado. We are happy to say 22 years later we are still providing a first rate education to the students and families of Pueblo, Colorado.
A school that is based on the Paideia Principles, "That all students deserve the same quality of schooling, not just the same quantity. PSAS has been classified as a "Performance School" for the past 6 years. The Arts are celebrated and given equal time and emphasis as the core academic classes. Our free After School Enrichment Program, is one of the best in the state. The Science and technology programs are some of the best in the state. We were a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) school well before the term was invented.
At PSAS Fulton Heights we incorporate the best of what PSAS has done well for so many years with a twenty-first-century focus on creativity, communication, and collaboration through maker projects.
In our maker school students are presented with real-life challenges. They solve these problems by inventing, repurposing, or customizing things in the real and digital worlds. Making has a long and storied history based on engineering, design, and problem-solving. Makers are interactive, imaginative, and thoughtful.
At PSAS Fulton Heights our classroom spaces are designed so students can engage the maker spirit by having creative and interactive experiences. Their experiences are rooted in the Paideia philosophies about quality schooling and integration of the humanities and coupled with modern science, technology, engineering, art, and math focus. Integrating the humanities with reading, writing, math, and science ensures students develop well-rounded foundations for any life path they choose. Our students imagine, build, create, tear down, improve, and recreate the things we see and use every day.
Choosing PSAS Fulton Heights is choosing to be a maker.
PSAS Homeschool is a one day a week “enrichment” program. Our program is designed to supplement the independent homeschool parent’s curriculum. Our day starts at 8:15 AM and runs until 3:15 PM. Grades are set up as K/1, 2/3, 4/5 on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. Middle school is Wednesday.
In the morning, each grade level will rotate through a series of three classes, art, science, and language art/communications. There will be a half hour lunch and then students rotate through another group of three classes, music, literature, and TEAMS. Our teams class incorporates teamwork with science, technology, engineering, art, math and music.
We will also have extracurricular activities on Fridays, such as field trips, tutoring, band, science fairs, art shows, Empty Bowls (a community service event to raise awareness for hunger) and other activities. You can participate in as much or as little of the Friday activities as you like. We will update info on Friday activities as they occur.
Inclement Weather Policy: Our administrative team has decided that we will no longer follow District 60 when it comes to inclement weather closures and delays. Since our families do not rely on bus services and drive their students to school, we decided that it was time to make our own decisions. We understand the hardship it is on families to find alternative transportation and/or daycare for their children. We will do our best to let families know by 9:00 PM the day before. If not, we will make the decision by 5:00 AM. It will be posted on our website as well as the communication alerts sent to staff and families.
