I ahve two children that go to Pioneer . This will be the last year for my oldest and the first year for my youngest. Besides what we all said when we went through school they love the learning aspects. When school started this year it was kinda slow but now that they are learing. they are having fun. Homework has never been over whelming for either child. They are exceeding in school.I would like to see more of an out reach to parents during the holidays.

Pioneer is a great school! My son has been there two years. He graduated from a private Christian School and I was worried about 'Middle School' and the public environment. I have been very pleased with his experience at Pioneer. He loves it! The teachers and staff are very parent and student oriented. The principals are well respected and loved by students, staff, and parents!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
