They recommend expensive tutors to teach kids how to read. I counted at least 12 families paying expensive tutors

This school ignores bullying among students, in fact there is noneofthese policies around. Parents complaints are ignored as well on this subject

I have never experienced such disrespect from administration to its students. Not only is the entire school incredibly disorganized, but it is also very selective in the students they target and punish. A student who gets to class one second late receives the same punishment as a child who skips class. Where's the logic there? Additionally, I have found the school to have double standards for men and women. While the boys can get away with wearing sleeveless shirts and chubbies, a girl who wears a dress to her knees with leggings will get publicly persecuted on dress down days.

Some are amazing (balancing rigor and learning), some are there for a paycheck, some are unnecessarily rigorous and some are just...there.

Amount of homework: Too much

What is sleep? The teachers do not communicate well. So some days some people will have 3 tests and 2 quizzes. Also the religion and theology department give too much homework. You get a grade for a religion that colleges can see. Most teachers try to be extremely annoying and hard assigning useless homework or giving unnecessarily difficult quizzes and tests. Religion should be a discussion and project based class, not a test/quiz/memorize/homework/grade class.

They respect you if your parents know all the administration. There is favoritism of students whose parents work at Pinecrest.

The gender separation is not fair. I know a guy who's male rank is in the low single digits, but when ranked with boys and girls all together, he's in the high 30s.
