If all you care about is test scores then this is the place for you! Pine Brook is the type of place that can take a terrific kid who is intelligent and crush his/her enthusiasm for learning. The teachers will tell you that it's his/her fault- that he can't do the work, won't stay on task, is a slow learner, you name it! Pine Brook use unduly harsh discipline, the staff and students are cultural insensitivity, and the staff is unwilling to acknowledge the fact that not all children learn the same way. The principal is unwilling to address teachers who use biting sarcasm to humiliate 8 year olds, use power to punish and manipulate students. The teachers put little effort into preparing lessons (recycling worksheets year after year). The staff do not understand that good grades are a by-product of building self-esteem, tapping into every students natural talents and passions, ensuring that they are happy, nurturing critical and creative thinking abilities and ensuring that students have real-world, meaningful skills to take away with them. Pine Brook is a wonderful place if you want your children to get a mediocre education

Amazing collaboration between staff, faculty, parents and students. Great pride among students! I feel like I am sending my children to a private school without the added costs!

Pinebrook has given our child wings! Truly is a school that cultivates and equips young leaders. An energizing environment. Children are valued and celebrated and approach to education is beyond the box and then some! We are so privileged to be a part of this.
