I have recently (April 2014) attended parent teacher conferences. Not many parents were seen in the halls. My son is in 1st grade, so his last year here. He is doing well in school, but my 3 stars is based on the state of the school, I felt it could have been cleaner, and his lack of testing. His speech is not where it should be, and I hope his speech teacher can continue with him another year. But she is over worked and needs more help. She's done wonders but needs more time per child. My sons reading is wonderful, but the statement of "we aren't testing him again, because other children need it more" makes me wonder if he is not being challenged enough, not being paid as much attention to, in school, in favor of students that are struggling more. I understand those children need more help, but that should not come at the expense of mine. I also have not heard of any gifted and talented program, which is what we had in our last district. This would let him soar in areas he excels in rather than being held back with the students that might need more attention.

Bullying is ignored. District policy is if they didn't witness it, it didn't happen. Lunch and recess staff are not kind to the children. Administration much more concerned with bringing in more students than giving a safe environment.

I completely agree that this school does not allow children to be there own people. I have good kids, who cry every day because they have to go to school here. I can't afford the commute or they would not be going here anymore. We are looking to move out of Mount Morris because of this school, it's teachers, and especially the principle. He is too strict for an elementary principal, rarely smiles and show no interest in the children as individuals.

I am new to Pinehurst as a teacher. The principal, his secretary, and the other teachers are very caring. They really want the students to succeed. There is extra help for the students that are below grade level. I am really enjoying the positive atmosphere there.

I am very disappointed in this school, they do not encouge children to be individuals! It seems to me they want them to be just like each other, no character, no punctuality, no self estem! I am soon to withdraw my children from this school if they do not realize every child is his/her own person!One good note, they do have a great computer program for the children!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
