Welcome to Pioneer Elementary School

Pioneer Elementary is our small, northern Billings Montana independent school located northeast of Billings Heights. This school has been providing students with a personalized and quality education since 1905. We invite you to explore our website to learn all about our great staff, students, school and environment, and unique academic programs.

Students have many enrichment opportunities with small group exposure. The student to teacher ratio is approximately 8 to 1. The students have great access to computers and the Internet. All classrooms have at least two computers for students use. Students tend to do very well when they go on to the higher grades, earning honor roll awards, National Honor Society memberships and several have even been their class Valedictorians. Pioneer School celebrated its 100th birthday during the 2005-06 school year.

Pioneer School has a variety of special programs for students, faculty, parents and guardians. There are special academic acceleration programs, Pioneer PTA, Community projects and even a Substitute Teaching program where parents of students can be substitute teachers.

For over 100 years, Pioneer School's success is based on the strong participation and cooperation of the teachers, students, parents, guardians and our surrounding community.
