This is my son's 2nd year at Pinedale and he loves it. The staff are very polite and the advantage is the school is small and the staff and teachers know each and every child and familarize themselves with the parents. Also there is many advantages in this school that parents don't familarize themselves with by not participating do to language barrier. The school does accommodates those parents and they go above and beyond for their studens which makes me very satisfied in choosing this school for my son.
Pinedale is a great school. The teachers are really involved with the childrens education. Unlike the pretentious schools like Copper Hills and Fort Washington, Pinedale is down to earth and cares about each child on a personal level.
There is a tremendous lack of parent involvement. Parents who are concerned with their childrens education are transferring them to other schools. The lower income children are laft at a disadvantage because they so not have the financial support of the community.
