My daughter thinks it's a pretty school. She started there in the middle of the year last year, and everyone was helpful.

Pine City Elementary is a great school because the staff (even the janitors and kitchen staff) work hard to help students succeed. I went to school here and my children go to school here. They have programs that challenge the gifted learners and the school has programs that work with students to help them succeed. The teachers and staff are always working to improve the learning experience for all students attending the elementary school.

In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II (MCA-II) to test students in math in grade 11. The MCA-II is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
