Pioneer Regional School Corp


The Pioneer Regional School Corp district in Indiana operates two schools: Pioneer Elementary School and Pioneer Junior-Senior High School. While the high school is a standout performer, ranking 120 out of 398 Indiana high schools and maintaining a strong 98.6% four-year graduation rate, the elementary school has struggled academically, with test scores well below the state averages.

Pioneer Junior-Senior High School outperforms the state on ILEARN assessments in grades 7 and 8 and has 50.82% of 11th graders scoring proficient or better on the SAT Evidence-based Reading and Writing section, compared to the district average of 50.82%.

The data also reveals socioeconomic differences between the two schools, with Pioneer Elementary having a higher percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at 55.65%, compared to 47.36% at the high school.
