Pinewood's comprehensive program provides a solid foundation in the language arts, mathematics, and science. In addition to the core subjects, our curriculum also includes history, French, physical education, music, art, and drama. A low student to teacher ratio helps ensure that optimum attention can be given to each student's needs.
The academic classes are departmentalized, assuring that each subject is taught by trained teachers who have a love for their particular subject. The dedicated faculty uses a blend of traditional and innovative approaches that allow every student the ability to fully experience the wonder and power of each subject.
