21st Century Learning at Pinewood School
At Pinewood, we empower students to embrace and navigate the challenges faced in the technologically advanced, globally connected society of the 21st Century. Our curriculum includes a full breadth of college preparatory courses, and our extra-curricular offerings are extensive. While mastering class content and pursuing potential interests, students become more creative, passionate, well-rounded, self-motivated, ethical, and insightful. As they encounter challenges and take risks, students build tenacity and resilience, becoming confident leaders and contributors inside and outside of the classroom. Our goal is for them to communicate with clarity and sensitivity, ultimately demonstrating cross-cultural awareness, understanding, and compassion. As Pinewood students are cultivating the ability to think deeply, read closely, speak confidently, and collaborate effectively across disciplines, they are also learning to use technology responsibly and innovatively. Master teachers foster all of these traits and abilities through state-of-the-art teaching techniques and technologies, high expectations, and consistent feedback. Above all, Pinewood teachers treat students with care and respect, nurturing their social, emotional, and physical well-being along with their academic growth.
