Pioneer High School offers a variety of academic interventions to assist students to achieve at the highest possible levels. These interventions include:
Embedded Support
A 15 minute mandatory tutorial is embedded in all block periods. Students who are earning a grade below a C will be required to remain in tutorial until their grades improve. Tutorials are also assigned to students who are missing assignments, fail to complete classwork, are tardy to class, or are unprepared for class.

Saturday School
Saturday school is available for all students most Saturdays and is staffed by credentialed teachers in several academic subjects. Attendance is optional unless assigned by a teacher or the attendance office.

AVID is a fifth- through twelfth-grade program to prepare students in the academic middle for four-year college eligibility. It has a proven track record in bringing out the best in students, and in closing the achievement gap. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID instructors are: Ms. Acevedo, Ms. Miramontes, Mrs. Hill, and Dr. Chavez. Click HERE for more information.
Guided Studies
This course is designed to assist students who have not been successful in school in developing the habits
necessary for them to achieve in school, to be on track for graduation, and to set education and/or career
goals beyond high school. Emphasis will be placed on recognition of students’ strengths, successes,
growth as well as their personal assets. Time will be spent in building the assets students will need for
school success, developing effective strategies to deal with personal challenges or past school failure, and
setting goals for the future.
