The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

    This is one of the few schools left that actually care about each and every student! I would venture to say that the principal knows the name of every single student! The teachers administrative staff and counselor put every bit of themselves into each student. I can't possibly say enough good and good seems as though it is a term that pales the reality of what this school is. They ARE concerned about the academics and working with the child keeping in contact with the childs parent(s). They look at each child as an individual and gear towards their needs. They make learning a fun adventure but also promote values and morals. They strive diligently to be certain that NO CHILD falls through the cracks. My grandsons not only loved this school but also had great respect for the faculty and in their eyes their teachers were an extended family! So thank you Pinecrest. YOU DO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!

    I disagree. this school was not a good school. there are very few teachers there who care about teaching. Now that they have a new prinicpal there i hope things change.

    Great Staff! They seem to show they care for their students. PBIS is wonderfully implemented in the school.

    I love this school. The staff is very loving supportive and the principal does a wonderful job. They are never about themselves...its' always about the kids.If there is something going on with your child then they will look into it and try to solve the problem themselves first instead of calling a parent when it's not necessary. The safety is taught tremedously well.I love to volunteer there.It is just nice to know that your kids are in good hands when they are at school.And I feel that at this school. I don't have to worry about how my kids are being treated or disciplined here.They enjoy having parent involvement as much as possible.I have always felt welcomed at this school.
