Pioneer High School for the Performing Arts is a very unique school. Its main drawbacks are their academics but they are continually getting stronger. As for the performing arts side, I am in the dance academy and we have the most prestigious teachers and a lot of incredible opportunities in the dance world. Also, we work with Deryl Yeager who is the Founder of the professional company Odyssey Dance Theater and we are exposed to a wide variety of big opportunities in the dance world. The training is highly valuable and overall I love it!

Teachers are very effective, especially in the honors classes where there are fewer students and they are able to give more individualized attention. Teachers are very clear about the requirements for passing classes and are concerned that each student does well and reaches their potential. It is very possible for students to be straight A students if they choose to be. Teachers facilitate student success!
There is not a huge need for traditional extracurricular activities at this school, though students who want them can access the activities that are part of their class requirements, such as performing. Many opportunities to perform via several school sponsored concerts and showcases, school plays and musicals, Shakespeare festival, etc. Student council sponsors out of school activities, year book committee, book club, etc. There is a yearly trip to New York at Spring Break that students can take advantage of should they choose. Most of the students are involved in outside performing groups and frankly would not have time to do things after school as they are running to their next commitments.
