Pioneer Elementary School is located on the corner of Carlyon and Henderson Boulevard near Olympia High School. Our service area reaches out to several neighborhoods of southeast Olympia. Because of its proximity, Pioneer is truly a neighborhood school. Named in honor of the pioneers who settled the southeast Olympia area, the school was completed in September, 1969.
The educators, realizing the impact of the rapid expansion in technology, knowledge and population, formulated a workable and flexible educational program around which the architects could design. The program requested self-fulfillment for the student, social involvement for the student, accessibility to knowledge by the student, mobility for interaction and teacher reinforcement. The total cost of original construction was $643,563.00 The building was designed and supervised by Bennett & Johnson, AIA & Associates, Architects, Olympia.
We envision that Pioneer will be a trusting and collaborative community that develops life-long, self-directed learners.
The Pioneer Elementary School community challenges each individual to reach full potential in a setting that fosters mutual respect, trust and cooperation.
The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction maintains our yearly school report card.
