Pinewood School - Upper Campus Reviews

Looking back, Pinewood was the right community for me because it let me get out my comfort zone and join clubs and organizations I would've never tried to join if I had gone to public school. I do believe that pinewood could work on finding a new campus that they can actually renovate because in terms of faculties the place is outdated, but the surrounding area is nice, but I understand that it is hard. It just seems unfair that they spend so much money renovating the lower campuses.

This school has an amazing community feel that will not be matched anywhere else. The teachers genuinely care about your learning and success and will go far out of their way to help their students. Truth be told, one of my teachers answered a question I had about some calculus homework in the middle of a wedding. That's dedication!!
Overall, I had a very good experience with this school. The school’s biggest advantage would be the student body. Everybody is very close and if you are new it’s quite easy to make friends and cement them. My only criticism would be that you can’t expect everyone to be perfect(and you will know everyone very well, good and bad). Come in with high hopes, but be ready for some downs.
