Mr. David Pancurak


Saint Paul School offers an integrated and immersive STEM learning ecosystem for grades PK-6. A small parochial school in Columbiana County with diverse student population, we cultivate an inquiry-based, inclusive culture of STEM learning for all stakeholders. We employ a multi-faceted system of individualized and collaborative STEM learning opportunities aligned to NSTA, ISTE, NGSS, UN Global, and academic content standards. SPS’s mission is to educate the whole child; mind, body, and spirit. In response to community requests/needs, partnerships, career paths, and commitment to experiential/service learning, we have focused on establishing a school-wide culture of STEM learning dedicated to social-emotional development, 21st century skills, deep learning, and service to others. At St Paul School, our students are learning valuable skills, such as communication and collaboration, through cooperative learning experiences. The mastering of these skills will allow them to be successful in their future endeavors.
