“Our little girl entered high school at Pinewood shy and uncertain. Four years later, she emerged a young woman who knows herself as a scholar, an athlete, an actress, and a great friend. What a gift.” PARENT OF AN ALUMNA
"For ten years, I have witnessed this magic: genuine care and concern by our inspired teachers that ultimately inspires students to reach their potential. It is an honor and a privilege to work with such a devoted staff."PINEWOOD Faculty member
"I don't think it would be possible for me to love a school more. This place has been life changing for my entire family. The dedication of the staff is incredible. Every day when I drop my kids off it feels so much more dear than simply taking them to school, it feels like I'm taking them to spend time with the rest of their family at their home away from home. My children thrive here. They are safe, nurtured, challenged and loved, and they feel it at Pinewood."PINEWOOD PARENT

Our mission is to provide competitive opportunities that emphasize the lifelong values of sportsmanship, individual effort, teamwork, dedication, and integrity.
Our students learn to see their world from new angles—by performing, singing, and dancing on stage, as well as by painting, drawing, and sculpting.
We aim to enhance the way students learn, communicate, and connect with the world around them by promoting innovation, creativity, and collaboration.
No matter what endeavors our students choose to pursue, their experiences spark a journey of self-discovery that is never defined or restricted by labels.
Our students build tenacity and resilience, becoming confident leaders and contributors inside and outside of the classroom. It’s no wonder that Pinewood students’ academic achievements match or exceed those of any school in the area.
