    This school has amazing resources, college counseling, teachers, and education. However, oftentimes academic importance is placed before mental health, and Pine Crest is a stress-inducing experience for many. A lot of students are at school for 11+ hours, and hardly have any freetime. The most important thing for students seems to be getting into college, and the idea of competing with your peers is stressed more than working alongside them. This school is very expensive, and my family was denied financial aid even though both of my parents are unemployed. Prepares you for college if you can afford it, but at the expense of mental health.

    What a wonderful and unique community this school is since they have Pk-12 students! The campus is beautiful, clean, modern, secure, and full of activity! The faculty and staff are friendly and helpful. The teachers are amazing, caring, and well educated individuals.
    Pine Crest is a great school in terms of its resources and avenues for student involvement. The majority of teachers are very qualified and have a true passion for what they do. The academics are known to be rigorous, which is valid from experience, however, the student culture that they have established is not friendly for mental health. College admissions are viewed as competition between students. GPA and test scores are main themes of conversation. It all becomes redundant after a few "copy-and-paste" discussions.
