Pioneer Junior/Senior High School Reviews
Some of the teachers are amazing and I've gotten to know them a lot better just by talking to them. Some teachers are clearly better than others just based upon their teaching styles and how they handle the classroom. I love the fact that our band here is getting more and more recognition now. Before, our band used to get nothing. Absolutely, nothing. But, with the newer principle and athletic director, not everything specifically centered around football or basketball anymore. Each sport gets their attention along with each activity. Some teachers are really good about putting grades in the grading system and others aren't as great at doing that. But, overall, the teachers are pretty good since they push you to your limits to see how willing and capable with getting out of your comfort zone to do new things and they help the student as much as they can since you can only lead a horse to the water, but you can't make it drink.
As a longtime student of Pioneer, I am biased to the school, but my overall experience was a positive one. There are not many classes offered since it is a small school, but the ones available can be very informative and everyone knows everyone here, so it's pretty friendly. The school spirit here is pretty big, although it has died down in the last couple of years. If you like small schools that promote closeness between students and teachers, then I strongly recommend this school.
It wasn't a terrible experience. I mean, I've been here my entire life and grew up with all these people. I know everyone in my grade since the school is small. I love the small school atmosphere, but at the same time hate it because there's not much that's offered to the students. This school is big on academics and huge on sports and athletics. Everyone takes pride in what they do at the school. The staff are super enthusiastic and really supportive in all of the students. The music department is making a climb again in numbers because we are getting the support we need and the respect as well. Small school equals a small band and we do what we can to make it survive, but it's getting better and better each year. Overall, the school really isn't that bad.
