teachers support and guide each of their students with warmth and respect. Our school is managed by a caring and effective administration. In support of this and of our “parents as partners” philosophy, we provide a broad range of opportunities for families to be involved in the life of the school and further enrich our students’ learning experience. At our school, wherever you look, what comes through loud and clear is the sense that everyone is united in the important task of giving our children the best education possible.
Yes, it’s an individualized approach, but we also work as a whole. Every child knows every
teacher. We take field trips together - and share in recess, picnics, school assemblies,
and more. The kids learn from each other, and benefit from guiding younger
children, or learning from older ones. Here at Pine Grove, we believe that
the foundation we lay for our students can and should hold fast through
a lifetime of learning. Our aim is to teach children the skills they will need
to become self-directed learners, flexible thinkers, creative problem
solvers, resilient individuals, and empathic citizens of the world. We
are proud and honored to be partnered with a distinguished group of
teachers, staff, and families, all of whom work together so diligently to
attain this goal.

One of the things that makes Pine Grove such a special place is how tightly knit we are as a community. Our experienced
