    "Pioneer Charter School is indeed a great school. The administation and personnel strive for academic excellence. The teacher turnover rate has been high in prior years as PCS cannot and will not settle for the average teacher, but is only looking for those with the drive and dedication it takes to work with second language learners. PCS is not for everyone, only the best. Many that have left Pioneer Charter do see that the grass is not always greener, and many desire to return to Pioneer Charter. PCS has had teachers that have left for personal reason, nothing to do with administation. Pioneer Charter has developed structure that many are not used to. It is a safe environment for students, families and staff. PCS has a very welcoming environment, one that the community takes full advantage of."

    "My students have been at Pioneer Charter for 4 years so far and it has been an outstanding experience. The school has great curriculum and teachers. My students are above grade level in math and reading due to the hard work and dedication of the teachers. I highly recommend sending your students to Pioneer!"

    "This is a great school, moving forward in the right direction. The building is well-kept, students are happy and teachers really care! State scores aren't everything; they have quality after-school programming and continue to move in the right direction. 4-stars to a great school."

    "A couple of years ago, I was a student from Denver University who volunteered at Pioneer Charter School. I remember walking into the building and immediately noticing a chaotic and unruly atmosphere. After a few weeks into my classroom experiences, I was appalled at the low level of achievement. As a parent of a bilingual child, I would never consider sending my daughter to this confusing school with such low standards for their students. It was such a disappointment."

    "My children attended Pioneer several years ago before I pulled them out. I had thought that a charter school would be a great opportunity for them, but it turned out to be a major disappointment. First of all a majority of the teachers were very young and inexperienced. The school has an extremely high rate of teacher turnover, which seems to show me there is something wrong with how it is run. That kind of inconsistency cant be good for the kids. Test scores don't seem to be going up. There was no parental involvement and there were a lot of discipline problems. There were mornings my kids didnt even want to go to school. If this charter thing isn't working by now, it'll never work. Send your kids somewhere else in DPS."
