The Pioneer Charter School of Science experience for me hasn't been that great but it has its moments. I do appreciate its rigorous educational system. It prepares you for college so that when you come to that point in your life, the amount of work will be achievable due to the school's manor of preparing students. Some things I would like to see change are some of the teachers and classes. Most classes that we are being provided with are perfect, in terms of college preparation. But a few of the teachers being provided to us to teach these topics may not always be effective in their process of teaching the students. I believe there are others more qualified to teach the subject in a manor that comes off more simple and enjoyable. Also classes many students feel like they are stuck with classes that are way below their educational capacity, and many believe it won't reflect what they will really need to know for college.

PCSS is a very diverse school, there are students that have a background from all over the world. Very easy to make friends and memories. The classroom sizes are up to around 25-30 people (depending on the class), however, having classes with those 25-30 people almost all day everyday helps create such a strong bond of friendship it is amazing. The teachers are there to truly help you succeed and will go out of their way to do so if you show them that you want to actually succeed. There are many clubs that students can join and everyone is welcome to try out for sports (as long as their grades are up).
Really really great school! The teacher and staff's focus is to give each of their students a great education so that you are prepared for college and success beyond college. PCSS offers tutoring Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays, so much diversity in the school, and since the school is small, it's easy to make friends and almost everyone knows everyone. It's like your second family over there.
