Pioneer School

  • 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.
