Our daughter is in the 1st grade and has been at Pinnacle for 2 years. There are so many reasons that we really like this school, but mainly, it is the personal attention, small class sizes, emphasis on respect and character education and challenging academics that keep us enrolling her each year. They have very good before and aftercare options for working parents. Also, not as expensive as most of the private schools we looked at in the area!

I am happy to send both of my kids to Pinnacle. I love how the teachers to guide the parents to help their kids. Very friendly staff. I was impressed to get a call to get informed about my kids behavior ( very minor) in the school so that I could talk to them same day when I see them. It is very convenient to be able to send both 6 years and 3 years to same school. It is very helpful to be able to leave kids early and pick up late with their before school and after school program fr a working parent like us. Thank you Pinnacle being there always for us.

I have 3 kids in this school and I love it. The teachers are great and the curriculum is excellent and atmosphere is friendly. My kids transferred here from another private school, the transition was seamless and they where welcomed with open arms. I am also very pleased with the school's focus on Science and Math. this is my second year and we are definitely staying here until graduation

All my three children are attending this school. My first impression ( after public school) was my kids like to go this school. Wow! . Kids see the school as an extension part of our family . School admin visited our home, all teachers and staff knows the kids by first name. Impressive

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
