Parents, It is that time of year again for our district-wide Character Plus parent survey. The Character Plus program in Independence works to encourage and support a positive and safe learning environment. It strives to teach kids about the importance and value of good character within the school, home and community. This survey is specific to Pioneer Ridge Middle School and will help us understand your thoughts and perspective on the culture and climate of our school. Please take the time to fill this out, as we want to continue to make our school a better place for all involved and your input is very valuable! Thank You!
Pioneer Ridge opened in the fall of 2000 and houses grades 7-8. Divided into five separate areas, or communities, the 129,000 square foot building includes 66 classrooms, 2 gymnasiums, a commons area, administrative offices, and a science center. The name of the school was selected because it reflects the many pioneers who have been a part of Independence history and for those who will be part of the new century.
