Middle School Student: It was amazing, I was taught well and the teachers were awesome. I am now in middle school doing great, all thanks to Redwood Elementary School. However, I didn’t find that many sports or activities I wanted to be a part of. Besides that. It was an overall excellent Elementary School for kids to go to, to become successful in learning life.

Parent: In a city with a plethora of excellent schools, Pine Street School has significantly exceeded our expectations.
Our child is fortunate to have an exceptionally low student-to-teacher ratio (significantly lower than other private schools in the city), so there is almost an individual learning experience.
The learning itself is clearly very modern and does away with much of the rote learning of more traditional programs. For children like ours, who like to move, this is a big plus.
Perhaps more important for us than the curriculum, are the intangibles. Firstly, there is a focus on leadership for the students. Secondly, there is a real celebration of cultural differences, partly engendered by the wonderful language immersion courses. Within weeks of our child joining the Mandarin program, they were already singing Mandarin songs at their (non-Mandarin speaking) home. Thirdly, it is a very loving community. We feel genuinely lucky to be part of it.
