I am a seventh grade student at Pioneer Academy. Pioneer has a very positive atmosphere and it is very diverse! Everybody is really nice to each other. We have many fun and educational clubs and electives like sports, art, programming, boardgames, music, and etc. I really love going to Pioneer and I have been going there since third grade. Pioneer is really advanced in Math programs. I am and have ben in the Advanced Math program since 5th grade and we win many individual and team awards every year. Pioneer also has a really nice Robotics program. I would really recommend Pioneer Academy.

As a parent who takes care of the education of my kids, I have searched a lot of schools but none of them give me the feeling that my son will be more secure than being at Pioneer. For that reason, I have decided to enroll my son to Pioneer Academy. After couple months of enrolling him to Pioneer Academy, I realized that education of Pioneer Academy is as good as its secure environment.

My son has been at Pioneer Academy for more than 1 year now. He is very happy and he loves his teachers. I believe his happiness and teachers’s dedication will make him a successful and well-educated person who also gives back to his community. I am also planning to enroll my other son in the coming year so we can see the same progress that we have seen in his brother’s education.

Thank you Pioneer Academy for being “Pioneer” in education!
LOVE IT! I moved to NJ because of this school, students receive excellent scholarships to colleges on average over $100,000 per student. # 1 SAT Performance among private and public schools. My 9th grader is taking an AP US History with a former Harvard U. professor. Students feel valued, and teachers are dedicated. Teachers stay after school to help students advance. Students love attending the school, and there is a direct correlation to their academic success. Healthy competition and high sense of pride and achievement are clearly evident in the hallways. The school's English teacher, Harvard grad takes time after school to take students: ice skating in Manhattan (35 min away), rock climbing to build teamwork, Ivy Schools college trips. It instills confidence & leadership. Every minute of the class time is productive.
