Great school with good educational focus with sports. Great teachers and sports coach. Perfect school and city to live and raise kids between Bellevue to Olympia. Military families also bring lot of diversity in school. Great Math and language teacher.
Awesome school! I just finished the 8th grade at Pioneer. I had mostly upstairs teachers. They were challenging and really seemed like they cared about me and the other students. Mr. Beaulieu was the best!!!
We have had such a great experience at Pioneer MS! Mr. Stout, the current principal, has been exemplary. He has been instrumental in making Pioneer a top school in the area. Since being hired, he has raised the bar in so many ways, encouraging and inspiring the students to reach their full potential. My 3 children have loved their teachers at Pioneer. Each have had different interests and talents; each had teachers that inspired and challenged them. From Project Lead the Way (a computer engineering course) to Choir, from Creative Writing to advanced Mathematics...and everything else in between...my children became better people and students because of their talented and amazing teachers! Team coaches have been excellent as well! Things added to Pioneer: Spanish, Algebra I and Geometry are offered to students who test into it, sports for 6th graders, and a Football program returning this coming year. The office staff and counselors have been top-notch also. We are moving overseas this next year and they went the extra mile in compiling documents and proctoring assessment tests for admission requirements, always so helpful and friendly no matter the inconvenience.
I have been very impressed with the school. The leadership here is outstanding and the principals have excellent discipline and reward policies. They always make my children feel more then welcomed, knowing them by name. The staff is constantly revising and rethinking what they are doing to best fit the students. At this school I know my children are safe, getting a great education and are surrounded by adults who sincerely care for them.
