Currently, I'm in 8th grade and I can tell you honestly that I will never forget my experience in Village Pines. I really felt like my teachers and principal were part of my family. They all prepared me so well for middle school. If you are looking for a school where you child feels at home and safe, Village Pines is the place to be. My experience in Kindergarden through 5th grade grade was incredible it was really hard to leave. I still consider the teachers and Mrs. Frazier my family. Please consider putting your child in this school. You'll never regret it, and you will only brighten their future. It's one of the best things you could do for them.
The school is a second home to the kids. It is a small setting with loving teachers and Mrs. Frazier who ran the school for 50 years was an outstanding principal. Now that her daughter has taken over, the change to a more income oriented school is noticeable, but the school is still well worth it. Due to its small size and affordable pricing, there are no after school activities, which is a negative, since the teachers are so good. Nevertheless, aside from that, they have taken care of my daughter and helped us turn her into a brilliant person for the past 4 years. I just wish they had a more challenging curriculum and more activities for the children to participate after school. My daughter still attends Village Pines and will continue to do so.
Village Pines School is a wonderful institutional gem. Our children are very happy and are thriving academically and absolutely love the nurturing environment. The small student to teacher ratio fosters a fun and dynamic learning environment. The teachers are truly gifted and love teaching. They give above and beyond what is expected. We love to help whenever asked. My children look forward to going to school each day!
This school is wonderful. It is like a big family with lots of parent participation. I have 4 children attending. Because they test with SAT and not FCAT the teachers are able to teach content not just test taking skills.
I love this school. The staff and the teachers are wonderful, its like one bing family.
I went to Village Pines from Pre-School till 6th grade. I made some of my closest friends there and was well educated. There are times I still visit the school even though I have long since moved on. The education and tools I received there set me up for a life of success. I am about to finish my mater's degree and often think about that school. I know each of the teacher's cared about me and inspired me. I only hope they do the same for your children if you send them there. I only wish when I have children I can find a place just like it.
Village Pines School was the best school I ever went to. The teachers are understanding and kind and they explain lessons so that every student has knowledge of it and can complete the work individually. The current principal Mrs. Frazier has a great sense of humor and cares about all of pupils in the school. Educationally, the work is challenging (in a good way). This school teaches life-long lessons and prepares students for the future so well. Please, send your child to Village Pines. I'm a former student and I had a great seven years there.
Both our children had the opportunity to attend this outstanding school. Our oldest just graduated high school and we firmly believe his success is due to the foundation and love of learning begun at Village Pines. The old fashion '3 R's' were replaced with the 5 R's - reading, writing, arithmetic, respect & responsibility. They were taught not only facts but life lessons in time management and research skills that continue to serve them well. I cannot say enough about this wonderful school and the caring staff. As a military family my children have attended 9 schools in 3 states to date - none can come close to the learning experience of this remarkable school. My only regret is that we moved before our daughter finished.
My son and our family love this school. They are attentive, kind, compassionate and they give the individual attention that we as parents find invaluable. The activities are engaging and challenging. Also, in this day and age it is nice to find that the children as a community are kind to one another.
Our son went to Village Pines for 7 years k to 6th. We loved the experience and the education he received was excellent.
My kids are attending this school for the first time (1 in K and 1 in 2nd) and I'm very happy with it. They have also told me that they are very happy here. It is a small school - good security - and has great music, art, and computer classes, all included in the tuition. It promotes good, old-fashioned values of proper manners (excuse me and thank you and please) and personal appearance (uniforms are strictly enforced), yet in a sweet way. The atmosphere is nurturing and the upper classrooms are small and orderly. The curriculum seems wonderful and they use a great math program, Saxon, which reinforces material by teaching it over and over in increasing degrees of difficulty. The school has been around since 1960 and many alumni (parents AND teachers) send their kids here - that must mean they felt they received a good education here.
