We moved from Pine Lane after four years and had no idea how poor the education was at Pine Lane until moving. If your child is gifted and talented or special needs it is fine but otherwise you are shuffled along with no individualized learning. It has taken my son a long time to catch up and I attribute this disservice to Pine Lane.
This review is for the Discovery Program (G&T) at Pine Lane. My daughter started in the 2nd/3rd grade class this year and looks forward to going to school each day. There is always something there to challenge her. This is a dramatic change from Frontier Valley where the teachers could not keep her interested or challenged. Mrs Littrell has done an excellent job at engaging her students.
Our middle child (the only shy one) was terrified that she was going to move to a new school (from MountainView) after doing really well on the COGAT's. She has started her 2nd year in the G&T program in Mrs. Littrell's class. My daughter actually wakes up early because she can't wait to see her friends and teacher. She absolutely loves going to school at Pine Lane. Can't say enough about the caring staff...
I am a former student at PLI and I loved it there were many great teachers,students,and everything! This school is amazing
My son has been attending the Gifted and Talented Program at Pine Lane Intermediate for two years. He has loved his teachers and has really enjoyed the challenges there. The extra-cirricular activities, some of which have included student council and science clubs, are activities that he may not have been able to enjoy at his previous school due to a great deal of favoritism and cliques. The office staff is the nicest I have ever met, and Ms. Ashworth is an outstanding teacher! We have found PLI to be a wonderful school.
I enjoy going to this wonderful school. They have so many friendly teachers who encourage us in so many ways. I just want to say, thanks!
Very child focused school. Because it is a 4,5,6 building, it has a reputation for being a little 'tougher' than a K-6 building, but I think that it really means that kids are held accountable for their actions more, rather than being given lots of get out jail free cards. Teachers & administration are smart & caring, & I really love the amazing depth of their specials department (art, music, etc.)
I love Pine Lane! What a great school for your children. We were truly blessed to have gone to this school all the years form the primary to the intermediate schoool. Top teachers that provide all the kids need. Mrs. Shea 5th grade is wonderful!
