I have two boys at Pioneer, 1 in 1st grade, the other in Kindergarten. The teachers are friendly and amazing with kids! Our youngest is on an IEP, and we are very happy with the staff support. Both my sons come home from school happy. I would highly recommend Pioneer.

I have a daughter on an IEP, and this school has been wonderful for her. They really work to set a curriculum that is right for her, and she has excelled so much. I have another daughter who was struggling in 1st grade, and they put her on a plan to work one on one with her during class. Her reading level skyrocketed within a month of them doing this for her. They really care about the students.

Curious if the number of children with I.E.Ps are factored into the scores. My daughter is in a class that is funded and geared towards kids who struggle due to anxiety etc...I am very pleased with how well she is doing and the level of involvement from her teachers. Additionally, now that she is at Pioneer, she has really blossomed. I would like to hear more about the calculation of scores ( i.e.what schools take on more academically challenged children) and how Great Schools factors into the ratings.

This school was awesome and trust me, if you are considering going to it, then PLEASE stop here! I moved from Colorado after 3 years of Pioneer E. and I love it and want other people to love it to. It was my very first school!

My daughter is in 3rd grade at Pioneer- her teacher noticed that she is excelling in reading. She now 'flexes up' to grade 4 for reading. I am glad they can make accomodations for my daughter for her reading level. That is important to me.

My son attended Pioneer from K to 3rd grade. He was always two grades behinds. When I asked for help from the prinicpal on several occasions, I never received a response. I did get a tutoring list that was two years old. The administration was non-supportive and cooperative. His teacher was insensitive as well. Communication is very poor and the prinicipal is biding his time. My son now attends a new school. He was put on an ILP and he is now at grade level. I would not recommended this school. I was PTO president for a while and parent involvement was very poor as well.

There are 24 children in my daughters kindergarten class with, from what I understand, some part time help. Parents are asked to volunteer time to help, which my wife and I do. According to this web site there are 19 kids to every teacher which at this time is incorrect. We talked to one of the women in the front office and she said 24 students is normal. I think there should be no more than 20 students per teacher. We have gotten on a waiting list for a school with less students and better academic scores.
