“Your mission statement defines the school’s culture. Everybody knows what it is. It’s just so obvious.” -AdvancED Visiting Team’s Exit Report
Pinecrest School is a private school for preschool through sixth grade, which is committed to providing a positive social and emotional environment for student development. The school provides an atmosphere that bolsters self-confidence and equips its students with the cognitive skills necessary to undertake and succeed in rigorous academic pursuits throughout their lives. It strives to reinforce basic values such as honesty, integrity, respect for others, and an appreciation for diversity.
Family involvement in the Pinecrest educational experience, low student-teacher ratios, caring and committed teachers, and a cohesive school community combine with a rigorous educational program to foster the development in students of high self-esteem, independence, responsibility, and an eagerness to meet challenges. Our ability to meet the individual needs of children, in close consultation with their parents, enables each student to grow academically, socially, and emotionally at his or her own pace within a nurturing and supportive educational environment.
