    Pine Street has always been a wonderful school but now with arts infusion it's becoming even better! The children are actively involved in their learning and retaining more information because of the arts. My children love their school adore their teachers and have learned so much! The creative thinking methods that are encouraged at Pine Street will help them be competitive in this ever changing world!

    Pine St is full of caring teachers caring principals and energetic and creative students. My daughter has been there since kindergarten and loves every minute of her time there.

    It is like a family! Everyone cares about each other and respects each other. The arts are important and infused into the curriculum. Parents volunteer and help out all the time.Teachers go the extra mile.

    Pine Street is a wonderful school! I first experienced Pine Street as a parent and was blown away at the'family atmosphere.' Parents are involved and teachers/staff really care! Now I am a teacher at Pine Street. It is a comfortable and positive environment to work in. Pine Street School is just the greatest!!

    This is an exceptional school. I am not from this area or this state and the worse I can say is that I wish ALL schools were like Pine St. Great staff and faculty high expectations and fabulous educational standards are also EXPECTED. The teachers are nuturing yet demanding. We are so lucky to have this school and the wonderful teachers and parents here at Pine Street and in Spartanburg SC!

    What a great school!! Everyone is friendly child oriented and outgoing. My 6th grader has come from a D/F student in District 2 schools to making 2 A's 3 B's and 1 C this grading period. I have three children at Pine Street and I am extremely satisfied with everyone! Best school in the county for your young child.

    As parent's to a first grader going in to the public school system we were very nervous about the changes that would take place with new people and a new curriculum but Pine Street was a great change. The school took my son right under their wing with one-on-one interaction to start getting ready for 2nd grade within the first couple of weeks. Service and participation from teachers administrators and parents has been exceptional. As I saw on one mother's t-shirt We don't send our children to Pine Street to be average!'

    The best Elementary School public or private in Spartanburg...certainly one of the very best in South Carolina. It possesses a rare atmosphere of nurturing independence and high academic standards that are beyond exceptional. No better place for a child to begin their academic career.

    This school is under the leadership of principle Tommy Stokes who brings together quality teachers support staff and parents to foster quality learning discipline and self confidence as well as school pride and citizenship. He and the teachers are outstanding as proven on school tests scores year after year. In Spartanburg if you want the best elementary this is the one to choose.
