    We had five children who attended schools all over the nation because we were in the military. Pinedale elementary is our favorite school any of our children have ever attended and a lot of those were really good schools.

    This preschool is the best in Rapid as far as I'm concerned! My daughter demonstartes so much leadership and she's learned so much from Miss Holli!

    My daughter just finished her last year at Pinedale and my son still attends. I can't sing enough praise for Pinedale. The teachers are outstanding teaching methods are current learning expectations are high and the principal (Mr. Zimiga) is very involved. His involvment affords him the ability to guide encourage and discipline when needed. I believe this school is one of Rapid City's finest.

    I am about to complete my career as a 'Pinedale Parent' this year. Based on the past seven years I am continually impressed with the achievement parent involvement and overall stimulation of students. My only hesitation is in the area of playground bullying -- I know the staff can't be everywhere and bullies will indeed exist -- but the same kids exhibit the same bullying behaviors every year.
