Mine is the story of a supportive staff, of which I have been a part since 2004. The dedication of the staff and their commitment to the children of Pines is beyond compare. The students here are blessed with not only the nurturing guidance of amazing teachers, but also with the knowledge that they can achieve their dreams.
We adore Pines! I am working on picking just one story for the webpage. There are so many aspects that have impacted all our lives in such positive ways it’s hard to narrow it down.
Our family has been a part of Pines for over 7 years now. We are now close to entering our last year with Pines as our youngest child will be transitioning to public school after next year. There will never be another school or group of people with whom I feel so connected. Pines was, without a doubt, one of the best decisions we have made as parents. The quality of education is without equal. Pines has a commitment to staying true to the Montessori philosophy, which in itself is as good as it gets in education. My children thrived academically and can speak intelligently on their strengths and weaknesses. However, even more importantly, Pines puts appropriate value and emphasis on best practices for each child’s moral and emotional growth. There is an emphasis on peace education: on being a good citizen, friend, collaborator and problem solver and on how to be a good steward of the environment and a contributing member to society. They understand that they are teaching the next generation of leaders. This is the kind of education I wanted for my children and my only regret is that we are not able to keep them at Pines for the duration of their education. However, despite the family choices we’ve had to make, I know that my children have received the best possible start and that the lessons they have learned will stay with them. Pines will always remain part of our family and I am so happy about their continued growth and improvement. To our Pines family, THANK YOU for being who you are and for all that you do for kids, EVERY DAY.
Bravo! A noble initiative, and I will not be surprised when you exceed your funding goal.
Congratulations on all your accomplishments. Thank you for the work you are doing and will continue to do for children and the community.
Pines is such an important part of my family. My husband and I chose Pines before we ever knew what Montessori was. We were drawn to the peaceful classrooms and caring faculty. However, the more I learned about Montessori, the more I it became clear to me that I wanted to be a part of the Pines mission and environment myself. Thus, I made the slightly unorthodox career change from attorney to full-time Montessorian into our Middle School classroom. I love it! Pines is home to my entire family!
Great achievement, great job! We admire you and the new home for the Middle School!
You have a beautiful school!
Hold on and don’t let go… 🙂
