Pioneer Charter School of Science II issued the following release

Students at Pioneer Charter School of Science II had their first day of classes on Tuesday, Sept. 2. They will be starting their new school year in a brand new building on Main Street in Saugus after a year in a temporary location in Everett. Faculty, parents and students are looking forward to another successful academic year.

On the new school building, returning sophomore Semezdin Hasanovic said, "I like how it’s nice and modern now."

Many students were happy to see their new school and all the amenities in it, such as Smartboards and full wall whiteboards. Others were glad to be back for different reasons.

"I feel like I’m coming to a place where everyone has a smile on their face and everyone’s happy to see one another which makes me happy," said freshman Jayleen Recupero.

PCSS II students are only going into their second year and have already had significant accomplishments. Students raised money for various charities, such as typhoon relief in the Philippines and competed in multiple academic competitions such as the Science Olympiad, Massachusetts State Science Fair and the NJASCS Math Contest at Princeton University.

PCSS II also works closely with its sister school, PCSS I in Everett. PCSS I enjoys a positive reputation in the community due to high academic performance from its students. PCSS students continually achieve high scores on the statewide MCAS exams in all content areas, across grade levels. PCSS II hopes to continue this tradition for many years to come through maintaining a rigorous academic curriculum combined with providing supports for students to succeed.
