this school used to be good. there are still some very good staff members whom care about the kids, but with the change in regime/management the morale and fun has been removed and it is very apparent that a dictator rules the school in the kids eyes. I know staff whom are ready to leave or have left, parents whom no longer volunteer and cant wait until their kids are old enough to move on too MS and kids whom say they don't like it any more. It's school, so it is not supposed to be fun and games, but children's needs and rights are not being put first.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

They lack the basic skills of communication which leads not being able to foster a positive school to home environment.

I'd like to second the thumbs up to ms. Huffman. My child is unique and has some adhd features as well as some health problems due to being born a premmie. Ms Huffman has always treated him with kindnes even though at times he can be exhausting. :) She is a top notch teacher and I'm glad she's at Pinecrest.

Our child is recently diagnosed with ADHD. We had a tough start at the school, fortunately his teacher is personally familiar with ADHD children. The principal should be more familiar with ADHD and speak to the children with a bit more respect. Other than that our experience so far has been very positive.

This school is the most horrific place I have had to place my child. It is so bad that we are trying to relocate just to get away from the school. Some of the staff has been replaced but what they were replaced with has been absolutely little improvement. When you walk in the front door you immediately feel unwelcome. They care very little about actually helping the students improve. If you have a student with special needs this is definitely not a place you want them. Quite frankly almost no school in this district is properly educated for special needs children.

I love the staff, the teachers have always been caring and very good with all children. I was shocked about the rating that the school have (4 out of 10) definitely I will give the school a better score. My children have always been very happy to go and learn in this school.



- a parent
Excellent! Teachers really love their job and help children not only to learn but also to have a good time while learning. My child has loved this school since the very beginning all these years. Great school!




- a parent
Very good school. Teachers and staff work together to provide a great enviroment for all children. Have no complaints at all.



- a parent
This is a great school that likes to get parents involved. The are quick to contact parents about problems before they actually become a larger issue and they are also quick to praise a child when they are doing well. The special education systems keeps the parents involved and lets them know how they are doing with quarterly reports and meetings when needed.
