This school is fantastic! The low scores on the CSAP has more to do with a migrant population of kids that come in and out of the school. The test include children that sometimes just start school a few days earlier. My child has learned a second language ( reading,writing, speaking and understanding Spanish), My child is off the charts in math and reading, all because of the incredible and passionate teachers that work at this school. We have been there through K-3rd and the staff we have worked with have always impressed me. I am so pleased my child got to experience this school. I wish we did not have to move now.
This school has such an up lifting spirit. They truly love what they do.
As a parent of a student at a Duel Immersion school it is unbelievable that the Great School rates this school on the same rating as a school with children learning one language. You can not compare Apples to Oranges but they do. The knowledge and true loyalty to the students that the teachers show is unbelievable. There is truly no child left behind! This school strives to meet the needs of all children!
A truly exceptional school. My two children went to Pioneer and benefited enormously from the high standards of teaching, strong sense of community, and excellent leadership. If you can see beyond the test scores, this will be an excellent start for your children. Highly recommended.
As a student teacher at this school, I got to experience a lot of the different aspects as an outsider and as an insider. Although the school is now under new leadership, the staff is still as strong and passionate as ever.
Escuela Bilingue Pioneer is one of the finest schools around. We are a diverse community that is committed to our children. We have fantastic teachers who are skilled and individualizing instruction -- they have to do it in order to teach in two languages, but they go beyond language. Our parent community is highly involved. The academic standards are high and the curriculum is exciting and challenging. Many different cultural activities are available and we are adding more all the time. I hope families will look beyond the numbers and see Pioneer as the gem that it is. Being bilingual will be such a gift for all of these kids.
Pioneer is a wonderful school. The staff is dedicated, and very good at their job. The administration is excellent. The school has a very friendly feel to it, and their bilingual model is very effective. The only complaint I have is that it is not a k-12 school.
Pioneer is quite an exceptional school. It has a very strong, dedicated and enthusiastic staff. There is also significant parental involvement both in the classroom and on committees providing guidance and fund-raising activities such as the PTA. While test scores are frequently a poor indicator of success in schools such as this, there was an astonishing jump in reading levels tested this year. I have recently had to consider moving to other states (my engineering position was outsourced to India by Intel), and with few exceptions, the other immersion programs I observed were not of the same caliber. It would be very hard to leave this program.
