Safe environment, REALLY. Physcial and emotional has been going on and overlooked under this principal's watch! Was an F when she arrived, now it's a D school. BIG IMPROVEMENT!!!
Pinedale has evolved in the past 3 years under new administration and there a notable difference in the total school environment. I applaud the Principal for her efforts in putting strategic procedures and policies in place to provide a safe and secure school environment for everyone. I can tell that the staff is more dedicated to teaching and helping the students in reading and math.
I like Pinedale because I had a special needs child graduate from Pinedale and went on to be a special needs teacher,mother of 3,and a wife.I have a 7 year old son who goes to Pinedale and I applause all the teachers there.
Pinedale's teachers are highly committed to providing a quality education to all students. From the unique after school program -- TEAM Up -- to free education trips to numerous areas of JAX as well as to Gainesville, St. Augustine, etc this school has it all. The latest technology can be found in every classroom, from computers to document projectors to various student software for for learning --- Pinedale has it all. Pinedale has numerous veteran teachers who have grown through professional development opportunities to continue to meet the needs of today's student. These veteran teachers engulf the new Teach for America Teachers, providing expertise in areas in which they may need help, such as classroom management and lesson planning. Pinedale is bless with a bonded faculty team and led by a superior administrator and vice principal, as well as an Instructional Coach, Reading Coach, and Math Coach.
Pinedale really works hard at taking care of the Special Needs Population.
Pinedale has the most professional teachers who care and put forth 110% day after day. My child has had many teachers go out of there way to reach him. I feel as though I can always reach my childs teacher. The communication is strong. I know my child is getting a high quality education at Pinedale. Those teachers need a pay raise!
Pinedale teachers do not care about improving the students education. They do the bare minimun in order to help their students. Pinedale needs motivated teachers who care for the children.
