Pioneer High School Reviews
Awesome school! Good but not overwhelming competition. REALLY bad food. I suggest you eat at home. Awesome special education support and mental health support. We have 8 minutes of passing time (as of 17-18 school year) so you have much time to get to your next class. Big school though, sort of looks like a mini mall stretched out on the outside. Three floors. Warning, expect a broken or slightly messed up bathroom stall per bathroom.
Pioneer High School is challenging and very competitive which prepares you well for college. Like most schools there are teachers that aren't as proficient as others but almost all teachers do care for you. There is a variety of available classes and options to dual enroll if the classes they offer aren't sufficient for you. There are several AP and accelerated classes students can take but they are challenging and often come along with about an hour of homework each night so be careful when choosing several APs. Being located in a college town there are several benefits brought to Pioneer. Pioneer is a somewhat diverse school, especially when compared to the schools in surrounding cities. There are groups of friends and people with similar interests but there aren't stereotypical high school cliques such as the jocks, cheerleaders and nerds which gives the student body more of a sense of community.
I graduated in 2016 and throughout my time at Pioneer, I had so much support from all of my teachers, councilors, and even other students. I felt a sense of community at Pioneer, though I wasn't apart of any sports teams in high school, I always felt like I fit into a group somehow. All of the teachers and staff made every student feel welcomed and helped as much as they could for those who were struggling or needed a bit more assistance. When it comes to high school, every student is trying to find themselves, which can sometimes cause conflict between peers, but Pioneer does a very good job at creating outlets for students to talk about the things that they are struggling with and dissolving conflicts between students or even with teachers. Honestly, I wouldn't change anything about Pioneer, my time there was great and I felt supported as I left Pioneer, embarking on my new journey.
