The Pine School2

Slightly above average academic experience. Matriculated for college, good academic prep and university placement. Sadly, very poor social experience for many kids. Expect cliques and "have/have not" experiences associated with private rich schools. Leadership is selectively strong and involved, but inconsistent. Money rules, so admin, teachers and coaches must tread lightly. Players on sports teams do not start based on ability, politics involved. Most teachers are very good, but there are notable exceptions. Questionable academic value for the money.
LOVE The Pine School. My children excelled in there classes. The teachers are very caring & offer a great learning envirement. My daughter graduated and is currently attending the College of her dreams because of what The Pine School has done for her along with a Fantastic College Counsler. My son left wanting to try something different. After 1 year gone we are now back & we couldn't love The Pine School Families anymore than we already do. Keep up striving to be the best you can be Pine!!
Left The Pine School because our children where not be challenged because there are alot of kids with learning issues.This is because all levels of kids are mixed academically. This is not good for the students. Also, if you are very wealthy you can threaten to pull your kids if you do not get your way. This is no way to run a school. Those kids need more specialized attention, just as high achievers do. Hard to teacher to all The kids at the same time. This does not make a college Prep school, as they claim to be. You should have to meet a criteria to go there. As long as you can write a check, anyone can go there.
