- The educational philosophy at Pioneer School is based on a thematic approach to education.
- Every year we choose four to six special topics for in-depth study.
- Each topic serves as a vehicle for teaching subjects such as Math, Science, Reading, Spelling and Social Studies.
- It is our belief that standard subjects are more meaningful to students, and skills are more readily acquired, when taught in the context of an interesting theme.
- It is also our belief that immersion in an area of study allows the students to experience success and the satisfaction of accomplishment as they expend time and effort thoroughly exploring a topic.
- Pioneer School is dedicated to making school an exciting place where children enjoy learning.
- Our thematic approach emphasizes student involvement with hands-on activities and topic-related field trips.
- Pioneer School students work through challenges in group settings as well as independently.

A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
If you have a child who sings, you might want to consider a choir school. In the United States, most of these schools are day schools.
