All of the teachers, principals, counselor, and other staff are fantastic. They are all open to communication with parents, proactive in preventing problems such as bullying, and consistent with handling problems should they arise. Most of the staff came from Southwest Elementary (which was closed when Pioneer Trail was opened). The teachers, even in kindergarten, understand the importance of differentiated instruction and go the extra mile to ensure that all students are challenged while being given the chance to succeed at whatever level they are at. They then encourage and promote growth and development both in academic and social skills.
