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 loved it, I thought it was a great college prep and education all around! I wish there were High school sports, but playing for your districted school was good. I thought most of my teachers were great, the administration was really helpful and actually wanted you to succeed, and even helped in doing so!
Pine View is a terrific college preparatory school. The students are all focused and driven towards further education. The teachers take interest in teaching and preparing the students for the real world and the upcoming challenges they will face as they enter college. The campus is open and allows for a college feel; giving students freedom and independence. Pine View offers a broad range of Honors and AP courses to better prepare the students. It hard, but so is the real world!
