Student Life

A Joyful Community

Pinewood offers students numerous opportunities to explore their own diverse facets, known and unknown.

At Pinewood, students can perform in the school play, help raise funds for a cause, compete in a variety of sports, visit other countries, or join one of the many clubs offered on campus. 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. At Pinewood, you won’t find the usual stereotypes or clichés—just unlimited exploration.
