Mission Statement Pinecrest School 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. Preschool at Pinecrest School Half-day programs (Monday-Friday) for three-year-olds and four-year-olds are designed to lay the foundation for future academic success and personal emotional health. Preschool students learn to function in structured group settings within a framework of positive ethical and moral guidance.

An indoor multipurpose room and modern high quality play facilities provide opportunities for safe recreational activities.

Kindergarten at Pinecrest School The kindergarten program is structured to strike the right balance for each child between the continued need for informal activity, including play, and preparation for academic work. Small class size and an emphasis on individual growth enable us to tailor the program to reflect the needs and abilities of each child. The program includes: phonics reading writing mathematics science social studies Grades 1-6 at Pinecrest School Without sacrificing the atmosphere of caring and attentiveness that permeates the school, the elementary grades provide a structured and challenging academic curriculum.

Initially, these lessons introduce the concept of foreign language to preschoolers through songs and conversation. In subsequent years, Pinecrest students considerably expand their knowledge of Spanish. The students go to Spanish class with a teacher twice a week in preschool and three times a week in kindergarten and first grade. Foreign language in second through sixth grade is taught through Rosetta Stone Classroom and supervised by the Spanish teacher. Faculty & Staff Pinecrest faculty members are carefully selected based not only on qualifications, credentials and proven teaching skills, but also for their understanding of children and their ability to provide a warm, nurturing environment. All faculty members are committed to the core principles of emotional nurturance and challenging curriculum. In-service workshops, personal academic advancement and active involvement in school policy and administration are key to the development of strong morale and a high degree of professionalism among the faculty.

Like Pinecrest School, Pinecrest Summer Pavilion endeavors to develop community and build camp spirit. In addition to taking classes, campers will have the opportunity to take part in camp-wide activities and theme days. This might mean playing on our giant water slide, dressing for a “beach day,” participating in a hula hooping contest, running through the sprinkler, or sitting on the lawn eating popsicles together – all the things that make summer...well, summer! Preschool Pavilion, our summer camp program for four year olds (by September 30, 2015), is offered all eight weeks that camp is in session and features weekly themes and creative, developmentally-appropriate activities.
