Pioneer Valley Regional School Reviews
I do not feel like this high school experience prepared me for college and I had a really difficult time adjusting socially and academically once I started my Bachelor's. PVRS struggles to prepare students for the expectations of an academically rigorous environment, and the lack of diversity and representation in the student body and faculty made me feel behind my peers in the adjustment to moving to an out of state liberal arts college after graduation. The school does the best with what it has and used to be one of the better in the region, but overall falls short in many important areas for some students.
Pioneer is great for people who need more one on one learning. I know that there are a lot of oppourtunities for a range of in school and out of school activities which I find fantastic since it is such a small community. That being said we do have a small school so everyone does know everyone, which can be a benefit! As far as preparation for college I am not sure how well we are taught to learn independently.
My experience at PVRS was not exceptional at all. I love the teachers and students here. I am a straight A student and even though the teachers are nice, they are not very good at their jobs. I took physics and chemistry with the same teacher and I can tell you that I learned absolutely nothing and passed the classes with A's. I also go to school in Western MA, where there is absolutely no diversity. Everybody at my school is white. I think there are approximately 8 black kids at my school and about 5 Asians, myself being one of them. I also do not feel prepared to go to college next year. My guidance councilor is so nice, but I still have no idea what I am doing. I have no idea how to apply for scholarships, financial aid, and grants.
