Two of my children attend Pioneer and they love it. I was able to meet the teachers and staff before school started back and they were all very helpful in getting my kids off to a great start. Everyone is very helpful and caring. I have had my kids in other schools and this is by far the best.

My School is outstanding when it comes to the teachers and staff at Pioneer now if we could just get a principal in the seat permanetly this school would have a 6 star rating. We need either Mr. Noss back as principal or Dr. Hess they were the only two whom actually involved themselves with the assemblies at Pioneer and it was a pleasure to see their faces at EVERY school function that is something Pioneer sees no more of!!!!

They teach whole language instead of phonics~ which I don't agree with, and I am a teacher. Also one of the secertaties is very rude!

I recently moved my two children to this school, and they love. Not only do they love it my wife and I are happy and excited about their progress at Pioneer. The principal is fairly new and seems to have done a great job replacing the last principal. The attention that is paid to my children and other children as well is unmatched. This school keeps an eye on everything that is going on, and supports all different walks of life that all children come from. I can sleep at night now knowing that the people that I entrust my children with during the day are safe and obtaining a quality education that will prepare them for later challenges in life, pertaining to school.

Wow! We can not say enough about this school and the staff who work and make this such a positive place for our children to be learning and growing. As a new parent who transferred from another Lebanon school we were unsure of alot of things and the staff have really made us feel welcome. When my child had a problem it was handled with priority. Mr Noss and the teaching staff are truely wonderful. I feel that if you are not getting what you want for your child only you can fight for them and go after what they need so for the other parents who have commented on poor communication and lack of support you really need to do what it takes to get what you need. We would highly recommend this school!

I am extremely pleased with the direction the school is taking. My granddaughter has a large variety of opportunities suited to her particular level in that subject. There are also many family opportunities throughout the year. I'd rate this a top school!

No school is perfect. As a parent of 3 children, I can tell you that during k-12th grade no matter what school your kids go to...you will encounter some sort of problem. My personal experience with pioneer school has been great. My 7th grader was being bullied. He wasn't letting anyone know about it at school. I personally went and talked first with the teacher, then with the counselor. I had absolutely no problem getting it solved. Mrs. Hartness is at the school in the pass room. She is also great at getting the kids involved together and getting down to the problem. I have to wonder..did the teacher's, counselor, Mrs. Hartness know what was going on? I have a hard time believing that they knew and didn't deal with it. The principal & staff have always been very supportive, and have provided positive encouragement.

My husband and I are transferring our student from Pioneer School due to the overwhelming lack of cooperation and communication between Pioneer staff and our family. Our student has gone from an 'honors' category in another district one short year ago to failing. The spirit of this child has been broken; the bullying from other students not monitored or dealt with; the lack of support and encouragement from faculty and staff at Pioneer School boggles our minds. We could not be more dissatisfied and feel frustrated despite repeated attempts to engage faculty and staff in supporting our student's success. This school falls far below what we would consider 'acceptable' performance. We would NEVER recommend it.

The principle at pinoeer elementary school is the most lack-a-dazical person I have ever met. Don't let that fool you though. in spite of him it is a very very good enviornment for my children. They are thriving and making incredible strides thanks to the teachers, and loving support staff available to them.
