The Mountain Pine School district is wonderful. As a former student, now at the U of A, I was completely prepared for college. I love being in a small town, I love knowing everyone in my school, and I love being able to talk to the teachers when I need help. All of my teachers went above and beyond to help me excel. The sports programs are great. My coaches have always been there for me to help me succeed in anything I tried. I was in the band program for 6 years and it is one of my most cherished experiences. Newer more advanced curriculum is being added every year, and I am proud to say I graduated from Mountain Pine. :)

The school is a wonderful learning environment for my 2 sons. The faculty takes an interest in them, knows them by name and wants them to succeed. Mt. Pine School is a great place to get involved as a parent and a great place to grow as a student. If you have the opportunity grow with us.

The Mountain Pine School district is probably the best kept secret in Garland County! The school is small enough that each student receives the personal attention they need, yet big enough to excel in any subject they choose. The admin, teachers, coaches and school board are eager to help the students obtain their goals. We have two children from the district. Our daughter is currently attending UALR and working toward her business degree. Our son is a senior and is planning to attend Arkansas Tech next year to begin the pre-pharmacy program. The opportunities are available at this school for anyone who wants to succeed. If you are considering a change for your child, please visit Mountain Pine. We think you will be glad you did! Tim & Tammy Griffith, parents

I am teacher at Mountain Pine High School. This is my 13th year teaching and I have taught at large, middle and small schools. I am excited to say that in the three years I have been teaching here, I have seen a steady improvement in the student body and in the caliber of education they are receiving. I believe my colleagues love teaching their area of expertise and so make it an enjoyable experience for the students. In addition I have noticed the students taking pride in the fact that they are soon to be honor graduates or completers in an elected field. Further, we have coaches who love their athletes and are always seeking ways to improve them and challenge them to be better on the field and in the classroom. It is a superb school and getting better!

I am a mother of two boys, both are students at Mountain Pine and i am the High School Art teacher. This will make our fourth year at this school. I have been teaching for nine years. Mountain Pine is a small school with the hometown feel. My cildren have excelled and risen to the top of their class under the instruction and care of the elem. staff. With the realistic student/teacher ratio., I have the opportunity to learn about each of my students where they excel and where they need attention. I can focus on the individual the needs. This is not possible in larger school, where the focus is on numbers per class and students per room. We currently have Advance Placement in eight subject areas and Workforce Ed. in six. As a mother and a teacher Mountain Pine is the school of opportunity.

Mountain Pine High School is a AA school. It holds about 750 students currently and holds 60 staff members including adminstration. I think Mountain Pine is a wonderful school, because it is not to big and the student teacher ratio is excellent. There are many qualified teachers at this school and great classes. For example everything from basic math all the way to College Algebra. This school year 2003-2004 we have only seen two fights out of the entire school year. We have great discipline, but we never have to use it, because the school is so well organized and run with superior adminstration and staff. I think out of all the schools in Garland County this one is the best choice that anyone could make. We hope to see you soon.
