The Piney Woods School Reviews

Something I like about The Piney Woods School is that it helps you meet people from everywhere. I have met so many people from different states and out of the country. Being at Piney Woods has helped me develop my social skills. Another thing I really like about Piney Woods , is that they do try to help you get into colleges. They have some colleges come up to the school and talk to the students about applying to colleges. Something I would like to see change at Piney Woods is the communication between the parents and the communityl. I feel that if the school communicated better to the parents and the community, the school would be a better place.

My son was bright , energetic, and full of promise. Unfortunately, in elementary school, his dad and i were divorced. This bright child had to struggle to survive enduring poverty and hardship. My son entered Piney Woods his sophmore year in high school. I THANK GOD for this school.. The administration and teachers were compassionate, patient, as well as firm. The farm experience helped to build a strong character which he still talks about. They knew how to bring out the best in my son who: graduated college; is now very successful in his carreer ; a compassionate leader, husband and father; one who gives back to his community in service and also works with kids who are struggling in life. He has made lifelong friends at Piney Woods. I can't thank you enough. I thank God.
I think that the piney woods school is a great school. It limits any distractions that you would have at a public school. I think that it is one of the best boarding schools in the country and that more people should look into it. It has helped me so much academically and socially also sports wise. When you are here it is like you are part of a big family and everyone supports and helps you prepare for your goals in the future
