This school is definitely not what it used to be. Do your research and check out their test scores. The new principal is awful. She is unprofessional, immature, and obnoxious. I don't how she got her job. I would never enroll another one of my children in this school again. Heritage is a better option if you want your child to get a great education. If you're content with your child getting a less than mediocre education, go ahead and put them in this school.

Wow, I feel better after reading these comments. I have had numerous encounters with the new principal and she is rude, she also dresses very unprofessional. I must add that she trash talks parents and doesn't handle issues concerning children being bullied AT ALL! She will sweep everything under the rug and hope it disappears. I really hope that this principal gets let go so that this school can go back to what it once was!!! I refuse to send my Children back here next year.

This school used to be one of the best elementary schools in the snowline school district. Since the new principal my child has experienced bullying. My child doesn't want to go to school and has asked numerous times if we can move! I do not agree with the principles tactic skills regarding the bullying. My child never has homework. I have never heard of no spelling words for a spelling test either. I feel my child's education is suffering tremendously. So much so I am either going to move, go to Heritage or home school. Good luck to the children of the future in this school!

Pinon hills elementary has some great teachers and some not so great. The principal is new and has a lot to learn. Many problems this year which the principal tried to hide by stopping volunteers, locking the door to classrooms and closing the blinds on the class window. Very uncomfortable and suspicious. The class size is 30 plus. The school needs improvement in their attention to bullying policies. My child suffered with stomach aches due to bullying and we had to move elsewhere.

This School used to be great! The new principal started this year and it has been going down hill fast. Her lack of concern for the safety and well being of the children is terrible. She also needs to learn to communicate with the parents without being crass or rude. My child is now unhappy and we will be moving our child to another school. The classes are not small!!! 31 kids in my child's class.

My child has continued to excel when transferred to PHE. The staff are helpful & friendly. School is well equipped. We would enjoy more activities or sports/clubs for the younger ages, but funds & lack of interest seem to be the issue. Also, the city needs to add a larger parking lot & widen the road. Pick up after school is sometimes ridiculous. Other than that...it's a great school & highly recommended. **A BELL SCHEDULE ONLINE WOULD BE HELPFUL**

Pinon Hills is a great, small school. My son was there for all his elementary school years and in the RSP program. He made a lot of progress even with his learning disability. The special education teacher and her assistant did an excellent job working with him and teaching him skills he needs to continue be successful in middle school. Thank you PHE!

My child attended this school for 3 years, and it was a great experience. They have great community activities and an excellent music program. I had many opportunities to be involved however I chose to be.
