Pioneer Senior High School Reviews
Pioneer is part of a 4-school district that covers quite a lot of surface area around several small towns. It's quite rural and not very diverse, but it certainly has its merits. For those interested in farming, there are classes offered to directly suit those needs and even has a small barn on campus for extra experiential learning. There are several grass soccer fields and a nice turf field for the football team. Since I've left, they've totally refurbished the science labs and renovated the music suites. The music department throughout the entire district was phenomenal. Chorus is offered from 3rd grade up, band and orchestra from 5th grade up. The high school performs a musical every year which is always excellent, with students and community members alike welcome to perform in the pit orchestra. There are also quite a good variety of classes provided, including a decent selection of AP courses offered for potential college credit.
Pioneer Senior High School is a small town high school with each year's graduating class having just short of about two hundred students. The feeling of community is strong; teachers, faculty, and students know each other by name and are willing to offer help or guidance regarding any subject matter. The population at PCHS is accepting to all genders, race, and identities but can only benefit further by discussing and understanding more about them.
Pioneer Senior High School has been quite a ride from the beginning to the end. I've made some of my best friends being involved with the school and the various clubs it has to offer. The school treats everyone as an equal, and the teachers are personal and care about their students very much. The only downside is that the school doesn't have a lot of diversity, however the diversity that is present in the school is well appreciated, and very well respected.
