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.
My daughter is a former student of Pinewood. She attended K and 1st here. We have since moved to an out of state elementary school that is in the top 1% of the state. I feel that she is thriving here due to the basics that she received at Pinewood. The principal was always visible in the halls among the students and staff. The electives program that they had when we were there was amazing! I have never seen anything like it at an elementary school. The 2 teachers we had, Mrs. Opsahl and Ms. Antonovich, were caring, skilled and enthusiastic! My daughter still speaks fondly of Pinewood!
