It just seems very simple, and with the core curriculum change, it does little to help a parent to help teach their child something that they themselves do not know.

I think this has more to do with the school separating magnet from regular schools. All children should be taught to the same standard

I do not feel like the children are disciplined equally. There are children who are display disciplinary problems, and are improperly or not at all assessed for effective corrective action

The leadership is lacking. The teachers are motivated, and I believe that my children have had great learning experiences there, but how the student body is managed for the demographic involved can use some work.

Teacher effectiveness: Effective

I believe that the teachers at this school genuinely are interested in the children learning. Unfortunately, there is some lackluster behavior on behalf of the current principal. Does not seem to be aware of policy, and does little to educate herself in a manner that can facilitate growth among the faculty and student body.

My child has attended pinehurst for four years and I have always been impressed with the teachers and staff. My child has developed both academics and social skills beyond her years with the support of truly caring individuals. I have developed a great relationship with the staff over the years and they have truly earned my support and respect !

I was surprised at all the programs offered at this elementary school a Jump Rope Team, Step Drill Team, Chess Club, Accelerated Reader program, Character Building programs through a partnership with Salisbury University. The football players even visit the kids at school. What a great role model for children of single parents.

What a difference a year makes! This is like a new school. The children are really thriving with the new positive behavior incentives program. The discipline problems are quickly being nipped in the bud. Let's see if the staff can keep the momentum going all year.

I believe Pinehurst Elementary and it's outstanding teacher Mr. Kevin Hill need to be applauded. They have done wonderful things with my son at this school that no other school could do. He actually likes going to school this year! They have a great aquatics program that has helped him a great deal.(he is ADHD) The smaller classroom has also been a great help. Thanks Pinehurst for everything! A GRATEFUL MOM!
