I used to hear how great this school was but honestly this school is entirely average. They have widespread bullying and behavioral issues that aren't consistently addressed. There are several newer and younger teachers that are excellent. There are also several older teachers who should clearly retire because they are barely engaged or paying attention. Results are driven by leadership and this school is missing a strong leader who can produce more than excuses.
After 2 years at Pinewood I can say that they are an average school with a great activity program. Poor communication with the principal and teachers (unanswered emails and phone calls where the subject was not addressed) left us feeling like we didn't matter. Perfect if you are a corporation however. My kids will not be returning and if I could, I would move.
My daughter is currently a first grader at Pinewood. Her Kindergarten teacher was absolutely amazing, and we enjoy her first grade teacher as well. I love the guided reading program and the explore classes offered. She is thriving and looks forward to school each and every day.
Both my children started at Pinewood this year. My son was significantly behind in reading. I can't believe the level of progress he's made. His teacher provided extra resources to help him advance. I couldn't be happier with their experience.
