Pioneer Upcoming Events

Applying to Pioneer School of the Arts:

                            Pioneer School of the Arts is a School of Choice
                                          within the West Ada School district
Our unique arts-integrated program meets the diverse needs of our students, helps students achieve Idaho Core Standards in creative and meaningful ways, and prepares our students for successful futures.  Pioneer is one of four elementary schools who are on the modified calendar 
Pioneer does not have a traditional neighborhood boundary zone.  Enrollment is granted through a lottery process. The West Ada School District believes in offering students and families a variety of educational opportunities that allow students to pursue an educational setting that matches their interests. The purpose of the lottery is to provide an equitable system for selecting students when more applications are submitted than there are seats available. All in‐district students who are currently registered at and attending a School of Choice may continue to attend the following year without reapplying but must submit an intent to re‐enroll. Dates for next year's lottery will be posted here once available. For specific information about our instructional program, please contact our front office.
