This is a great school, though it's not the most diverse. The curriculum is strong, the teachers are able and the students are motivated.

Pine Crest is a school everybody would wish their children could attend. Wonderful labs, campus, teachers, parental and student involvment are all top notch. There is a bad rumor of 'too much pressure ', not so. Not every child is meant to be there. That's why we all want our children there. It is above average in academics and thats whats expected. It is also very expensive, but they do give scholarships. 100% of graduating students go on to college. Need I say more.

Although I am not a parent. I myself attend this school. It's a hard school, but you get used to it. And you will get into college here, the guidance office is amazing. And you couldn't ask for a better campus with every amenity. The school is constantly updating buildings. For example, we are currently turning Lane Hall into a 'wellness center.'

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
