    It's too bad the this site defaults to 1 star if you don't click on the rating if you've submitted. Pinewood is a good school and my previous rating doesn't reflect that.

    My child has attended two other schools in the Rochester Public School system and this year at Pinewood has been the BEST! My child is called by name by every staff member. I have been greeted and acknowledged every time I have entered the building. At Pinewood you get a genuine feeling of welcome and compassion. We love the small community feel at drop off and pick up. Very Professional Staff.

    The administration at Pinewood has their priorities backwards. The teachers themselves are great but if you don t feel your child is safe it doesn t matter.

    We love the small neighborhood school feeling at Pinewood!
