The Pinewood Experience
The Pinewood experience offers students a small, caring environment to learn and pursue a number of interests. Smaller class sizes enable faculty members to give students individualized attention. This smaller setting allows students to explore a variety of options for involvement. Students in Lower, Middle, and High School are supported in their academic, athletic, and extracurricular endeavors.
Pinewood values the overall health and wellness of its students, faculty, and staff. Our on-campus sheriff’s deputy provides daily oversight of the school’s security measures. A registered nurse, certified athletic trainer, and two school counselors are on hand to ensure students’ physical and emotional well-being.
At Pinewood, the rigorous expectations of a college preparatory curriculum are balanced with the joy of personal inquiry and exploration. Beginning in Pre-K3 students focus on core subject areas as well as STEAM concepts through hands-on, real-world applications. A Pinewood education is designed to produce a well-rounded student who is equipped for the challenges of the outside world. Citizenship and character are honed through community service opportunities and the school’s Honor Code.
Pinewood’s standard of excellence also applies to faculty members, many of whom hold advanced degrees. Faculty members are encouraged to be lifelong learners through professional development opportunities. Twenty-nine members of the Pinewood faculty have received the SCISA Master Teacher designation, the most of any school statewide.
