Pioneer High School Reviews

The best thing about Pioneer High School is that the teachers are great! My daughter graduated this year(2010), and has autism. Her teachers were always willing to work with her and helo her out with her work. Especially, Mr. Gonzalez(Math teacher). He is a very caring and patient teacher. When my daughter was having trouble socializing, he encouraged her to join the Leo's Club. She did and was in for all 4 years. She loved it and helped her feel good about herself. Thanks to the Pioneer teachers, my daughter is off to college, and has evolved into a wonderful young lady with so many dreams and asperations.

Greetings, two of my children have graduated from Pioneer High School. My daughter Roberta graduated in 2004;my son Michael graduated on June 16th 2010.
We have two other children attending Pioneer. All my children have been treated well. There may have been some people (staff) not teachers!! who did not like one of my children. However, we have tought our children that in life not everyone will like you. That's just a part of my children we not moved nor did they pout.
Over all Pioneer is a great school..we owe Thanks to all teachers and staff who made an forever impact on our childrens lives. Thanks to Mr. Murata (counslor), Mr. Montenegro (Auto shop) teacher, Mr. Smith (English). Mr. Murata and Mr. Montenegro went above and beyond for my son Michael. Thanks Pioneer High

I my kid attend Pioneer and have never been treated unfailly. If you want things to change you must be involved as a parent. Thinks only change when you are involved with your students and the school activities. Tired of hearing how bad Pioneer. I am very proud to say I went to Pioneer and now my kid attend, which are Honors kid. So get involved and not put down the school.

This school really needs to work on treating everyone the same,especially those that have come from a different city,state or country. And especially those who seem to stick out from the crowd. And I say this school should be taken down ! It is that absolutely terrible!
