Although the school is a bit smaller than all the other schools in the district, everything in this environment is great! The teachers really do care about their students and their progress in class . Everyone in the offices are very helpful and friendly, totally recommend this high school.

Pioneer High School has been a very good experience for me personally mainly because of the student to staff connections that I have. Pioneer is a fairly small school which really allows students to be familiar and comfortable with all or most of their teachers and staff members. This makes many students more comfortable with asking for help from teachers as well as any staff member. Resources are very accessible and available which makes all students and parents lives much easier. One thing I would like to see change at Pioneer is the rate of student involvement. Most students at Pioneer aren't involved much and there is not much school spirit coming from the students. I believe that if students saw that all staff members were at least attempting to be involved in the school and its activities, the students will follow along more.
My Experience at Pioneer was very good. The teachers are very supportive and help you with any thing you need. Even in challenging courses teachers are always there to help you. Resources at Pioneer are excellent. Horizons is a helpful tool since freshman year, they help you find the best college for you, help with any questions such as financial aid, scholarships, personal experience they aren't only staff there your friends. Peers are very supportive as well and it's a very safe campus in which everyone seeks that every student has the best experience and is always safe. Our principle is very supportive and always wants the best for us.
