Pine View School Reviews

300 reviews

Pine View is sometimes criticized for lacking diversity, and it one key reason why this school isn't consistently ranked #1. That's because the school is a true meritocracy where your character, intelligence, discipline and hard work are important and ethnicity is not. Getting into this school is easier than staying in so parent engagement and participation is just as important as the student's.

Like any public school where teachers are protected by an omnipotent union, there are a lot of them that shouldn't be teaching, but are tolerated because the union forces the admin to do so. Parents must navigate their kids through the bad which is an unfortunate reality. However, the good ones will make you forget the bad because the good ones are really, really good.

When graduates come back to talk to current students a year or two later, the universal comment is about how easy college was for them because they were so well prepared at Pine View.

I truthfully don't know what my life would be without Pine View. This is a school that one can be undoubtedly proud of attending. The student body at PV is amazing, as we play off of each other's competitiveness, creativity and intelligence very well. The amount of opportunity offered at this school is second-to-none (literally). Whatever you're into, whether it be exclusively academics or extracurriculars and community service, PV is definitely one of the best options out there.
Pine View is a unique experience for everyone who goes there. It is a smaller school, which means it has certain social limitations. The teachers, overall, are good and care about you. The school also, however has an immense amount of pressure on their students to maintain their 'prestigious' gifted appearance. The administration and guidance departments often are incapable of helping with basic issues.
