My child attends Carson Online which is located on the Pioneer High School campus, and I cannot say enough positive remarks about the director of the program, and the staff that it shares with Pioneer. We moved to Minden to have access to Douglas High School but after problems trying to enroll our daughter due to their process of needing transcripts prior to testing and course selection two days prior to the start of school, we did not hesitate to re-enroll our child at Carson Online. Wonderful program for self-motivated learners, and access to honors, AP courses, and dual-enrollment courses with additional options to earn credit beyond the standard high school required 7 credits (and only 6 in Douglas County).

Pioneer is the best second chance that any of these children can get. The care and advice that is given goes beyond what any other school would do. Thank You

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the High School Proficiency Examination (HSPE) to assess high school students in reading, writing, math and science. The HSPE is a high school graduation requirement. The HSPE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
