Pinecrest Preparatory Academy Charter High School Reviews

Pinecrest Preparatory Academy Charter High School is a great school with plenty of opportunities for kids to prepare for college. They offer a fantastic dual enrollment program, allowing students to graduate from high school with an Associate's degree. They also offer a wide variety of AP classes ranging from AP Computer Science, to AP Calculus. If you want to get ahead of the game, Pinecrest is the right school for you. If you take the initiative, you can graduate from school with a large amount of college credit. Additionally, Pinecrest has relatively small classroom sizes, resulting in a personal experience for the students. One thing I would like to see change from this school is perhaps the fact that there is no gymnasium. However, the school is already making plans to have one very soon. I definitely recommend this school to somebody looking for something in between a public and private school.

My educational experience from this school is unmatched. They truly stick to their mantra and I'd say they not only prepare you for college, but for graduate school. The teachers that taught me at this school cared strongly about their students and material even when facing differences with the administration. However, I entered this school unaware that the entire academic focus would shift from a rounded scholastic body to one heavily focused on STEM. I did not achieve most of my goals as a student here because they did not align with what the administration desired for their students. I am unsure if the school has now fully focused on a certain approach but I hope so. The small student body bands together under difficulties shared together which enriches the school's culture. Overall I'm thankful for my educational experience because it was truly at an above average level and it made me feel really prepared to continue my studies after graduating.
Pinecrest has been my second home since I began there at the age of 11, all the way until now being 17, a junior, I will continue my high school career there as well. This school has presented to me bonds with people I would now consider my family, an educational one on one learning environment with the teachers. That otherwise would not be provided in a much larger public school. At Pinecrest, they have provided me with vast educational and social opportunities to expand my horizons in all forms. including all the clubs, and wonderful volunteer opportunities they offered, which I most certainly have taken advantage of. In addition, you can really feel how close nit we are, and the love that bounces through the hallways on a daily basis. Being a Pinecrest Croc for me will always bring me tremendous proudness.
