Student Led Conferences

A Student Led Conference is Pioneer Academy's approach to assessing each student's growth. This method of recording student progress is led by the student in a 20-30 minute demonstration and presentation. Student Led Conferences not only foster accountability, responsibility, and metacognition but connect the student, parents, and teachers. This process ultimately empowers the child in knowing that we are all working together as they learn and grow.
