FANTASTIC School! Principal Greenlee is a wonderful woman, and genuinely loves her job and cares about her students. The teachers are great, and they do their very best at making sure the parents are informed, and that students stay on track with their learning and grades. The school is always doing some sort of updating, like new smart boards and a second computer lab, to make the school as competitive and up to date as possible. I always feel that my children are safe and in good hands while in school. Pioneer Park has a great in-house afterschool program which is very helpful to us working parents. The PTA is great; although I don't have the time to be a part of it, I am very thankful for all they do for our kids. You can't get much better than Pioneer Park.

Pioneer Park is a wonderful school. My son completed K-5th grade there and my daughter is a 2nd grader this year. The teachers, Principal and staff are all dedicated to the success of the students and greatly encourage parent involvement. The students receive a great education at Pioneer Park as evidenced by more students from Pioneer Park that go on to Make the Principals honor roll at the middle school level than from any other east side school. The school also focuses on the 8 great expectations which teach/model appropriate behavior on a daily bases to the kids. I can't say enough positive things about Pioneer Park Elementary and it's staff!!!

This is a Great Expectations school, and that program has helped form the values and behaviors of my children. There is also a good anti-bullying policy in place. The kids feel safe and respected here, which helps create an environment where they can learn and grow very well. They still have PE and recess, so the kids can burn off their excess energy, which helps them focus. The staff is friendly, and open to parent involvment. This is a good school.

My son has attended Pioneer Park for the past two years and we have been very happy with it. The principal, Mrs. Greenlee, runs a very well structured school. The students know what is expected of them and thrive in this environment. Anyone looking for an excellent school in Lawton should definitely look at Pioneer Park.
