What is Pioneer High School?

PHS is fully accredited with (AdvanceD).  It is a free and public school which students in grades 9-12 can enroll easier throughout the year than most comprehensive high schools. The Alternative High School status which was approved through the Department of Education allows PHS to offer many different formats to meet the diverse needs of the community.  PHS also has an ongoing grant funded partnership with Project Discovery which allows for extra field trips and hands on experiences for students.  Students can earn 9+ credits per school year with a variety of scheduling options offered based on their individual needs.  Students can also earn credits in recovery mode at their own pace or utilize a hybrid of traditional style classes or flexible lab hour scheduling.

PHS offers Career and Technical Education (CTE) options which are coordinated with WNC for dual college credits in the area of Medical Technology, health science, and Health Information Management with HOSA.
