Pioneer Elementary School, part of the Salmon School District 291, is nestled in the Salmon Valley, which is surrounded by the Bitterroot, Sawtooth, and Lemhi mountain ranges. The Salmon river is may be the star of the valley, but here at Pioneer Elementary School, the stars are our students. We work with them every day to see the good in themselves, the good in others, and the good that comes from learning.
Pioneer Elementary School is a preschool through fifth grade school with an enrollment of about 300 students. The staff at Pioneer is comprised of certificated teachers, instructional aides, a secretary, a librarian, a counselor, custodians and maintenance. The average teacher/student ratio is 1:18. Our small school enables us to get to know the students will, creating a community of mutual respect and appreciation.
Pioneer Elementary has a fantastic Parent-Teacher Organization which assists the students and staff by supporting programs which generate a positive atmosphere for learning. Many of the educational enrichment programs enjoy would not be available it if was not for this generous and supportive group.
