Pines Lakes Elementary has a renewed spirit and excitement under the leadership of the Principal Mrs. Susan Sasse and Assistant Principal Cormic Priester. Academic achievement and motivation have been the focus for this school year. Students and teachers are enjoying this year's theme, "We are all Superheroes."

Pines Lakes is a wonderful, caring community school. The teachers are experienced at what they do and volunteers are welcomed. The new principal is doing great things for the school.

Wonderful school with a wonderful teaching and support staff that has been torn apart and ruined as of late with the addition of a horrible principal! What was once a loving, caring and nurturing environment for children to learn and grow has become a militant run establishment where the poor teachers and children hate arriving every day and can't wait to leave! Staff and students alike are treated like a number by this woman. Gone are the days when you could rest assured your child was loved and taken care of by an administrative staff that cared. This new administration pretends to value parental involvement, but don't be fooled... word is she ran off the entire PTA program from the school. There is thankfully, a light at the end of this very dark tunnel. This horrible principal will be retiring after the 20113-2014 school year. Thankfully most of the teachers do what they can to continue inspiring the children during these trying times. This used to be such a wonderful school with a true family feel. Hopefully that will return after the reign of Nitti comes to a close.

Excellent school, staff & volunteers. I attended this school as a child & all 3 of my kids went there as well. I never had 1 issue with the school. The staff was so caring & friendly. Strict policies about letting parents in without checking in 1st is great for safety. They call with reminders & keep us updated on all that is needed. A+ school, always clean. Highly recommend.

Horrible school says one parent? What is this based on? Are you involved? If you were, you would know you are wrong. Rude office staff? Are you kidding? Those ladies are sooo friendly and caring. Staff allows volunteers to roam school with no question? Of course they do, they are there to volunteer! They are approved to do so through a county background check. Parents aren't allowed inside? Of course not during school hours... but if you become a volunteer you could come inside when ever you'd like to volunteer. Parents are more than welcome in for conferences, school programs & events. Would you want parents roaming around at any other time? The school is doing it's job by keeping all of the students safe. If you want to be more invloved and understand what's really going on... sign up to volunteer or join the PTA.
