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.

I have been in Pinecrest Preparatory High school since I was in 6th grade. It's taught me many things throughout these years. It's taught me how to communicate with others, how to prepare myself for the next day, and it's specifically taught me to not procrastinate. The teachers and the administration here welcome me as if I'm their daughter. They're heart-warming and kind. The only thing I wish that could change would be sports and food. The school should have more options for sports and put more attention to sports as in buy a nice indoor court or new balls for every sport.
I like how small the school is in comparison to other schools in the area. The school is very focused on preparing students for college, so they provide many programs to gain college credits. You start taking the PSAT in 8th grade, if you attend the school through middle school, so I fell like our students are ready to take the actual SAT. My few critiques of the school are that I wish it had more clubs, the few clubs the do provide, along with honor society’s, don’t cater to everyone’s interest. I also wish they’d provide more language classes other than French and Spanish, like some other schools in the area do. One last critique is that I feel like sometimes the school heavily enforces some unnecessary rules and ignore some of the more important ones. I’ve attend the school since the 6th grade, currently a sophomore, and have had a well enough experience. Most of the students are welcoming and there is little to no bullying.
