Pine Level Elementary School5

My 2 kids attend PLES and we absolutely love it. They challenge the kids and give them lots of hands on activities and visual exercises. My youngest really struggles in reading and while I was trying to find a class after school to meet our schedule, the school had already put her in an intervention course within the school several times a week. They notice the little things and do everything to help the children succeed. I would not change anything about it. My daughter's 1st grade teacher is Mrs Cook and she is wonderful. Even the bus drivers are great. I love how they have the high school students separate from the elementary students to avoid bullying. Great move!!
We are a military family of 4 children. We have had 3 children attend PLES for 2 years now. Academics-My children are challenged, but not to the point of feeling unaccomplished. They are learning and I love it! Art and Music- My eldest has participated in PL performers and loved it. So do we. We still sing the songs. Their art work is displayed throughout our home. PE- They get lots of excercise. My children have said the coaches are mean....honestly I thought mine were too. Building/Grounds- Constantly maintained and improved. The issues that exist are known and handled. Mrs. Loftin announces these issues and their resolution. Staff- I don't know any personally. I have teachers I prefer. Communication with teachers, nurse, attendance office...has been top notch. Luckily we have had no need to contact either the principal or v. principal. Bottom Line...this school will educate your child just fine and then some. Imagine what happens when you get involved!
My daughter went to Pine Level for first grade and excelled. She was advanced in her class so they seperated her and some other students who were also ahead of the game and catered to their needs several times a week. She loved that and felt special and also continued to enjoy learning. I think this is a excellant school.
overall i think pine level is a pretty good school, but some of the teachers there are just plain rude and and say inappropriate things to children. also, the principle has a tendency to be a little rude herself.
