Posted January 6, 2009

I am very please to have 2 children attending this school. The homework is what is to be expected as any school where you learn. The people as well as the environment is all I would have hope it would be. A place I know my children will be well rounded with knowledge, social skills as well as work ethics. As I believe, any school you choose to attend should have parental support. Pine Grove is one of the most supported schools in the area. Education use to be a priviledge, but unfortuantely people have forgotten. So remember the saying, what doesn't kill you, will only make you stronger. Remember the focus. Thank you Pine Grove for you guideance and the quality of continued education you offer.

i think pine grove is a wonderful school it's hard and we do a lot of work but it pays off at the end of the year and also when your report card comes to see if you passed.

I am very pleased with Pine Grove School and fifth grade in general. Our children are given much work, but this is what they ARE in school for..........to learn. I must also mention that the standardized test scores in the fifth grade are some of the highest in the state. Thank you teachers!

Pine Grove 5th grade is terrible. The homework is way too much, three hours a night, the book bags are too heavy, the kids are treated like they are in prison. I am not happy with the 5th grade classes. I have been very please up until this point!
