The Pinecroft School education rests upon a dedication to the student as individual learner. In a tutelary spirit, we encourage our students to be resourceful, self-reliant thinkers who are able to work both independently and cooperatively with schoolmates.
We provide a supportive and stimulating environment where students can explore and identify their individual talents and learning styles. Our students are encouraged to formulate their own ideas and answers in a place where achievement is measured by personal successes and advancement. Students are able to explore their potential selves in an accommodating environment where originality is celebrated. An atmosphere charged with possibility encourages students to take risks and challenge their own intellectual curiosity.
Our low student teacher ratio enables our exemplary staff to deliver individualized attention to each child. Through direct teaching and self-directed exploration, students develop basic skills that become the foundation for a life-long mastery of the subject. We believe the elementary education should not only instill knowledge and develop skills but nurture a passion for learning.
Classroom lessons and hands-on projects reach across the disciplines to provide integrated units of study which complement the curricula and academic materials. Class work is supplemented by various guest speakers, enrichment programs and stimulating field trips to provide an experiential dimension to the learning process.
