    My oldest is in 6th grade at PLMS and I could not more impressed with this school administration teachers and students. As a parent I was dreading the middle school experience but at PLMS the kids seem to thrive and love their time there. Great anti-bullying policies seasoned teachers with high expectations and a strong parent body that supports the administration and students. Truly a joy to be included at this school.

    Pine Lake is the best middle school in the Issaquah School. The teachers and everything about it is great.

    Pine Lake is a superb teaching facility. Aside from high WASL test scores the students have excellent extracurricular activities as well. Their sports are always first class. Having Fall Winter and Spring athletics. And also choir band and orchestra perform at many concerts around Washington. The teachers are qualified and are actually interesting to listen to.

    This is a great school--excellent test scores wide variety of sports afterschool. A new web designing class is popular. There is a lot of technology available.

    Pine Lake is a decent middle school unless your child falls outside of the 'middle ground' range. The classes are large so the teachers tend to teach to the students who are average and those struggling because they are behind or ahead of the learning curve fall through the cracks.

    Pine Lake is a good school with good intelligent teachers yet it has some problems with drugs among the student body.
