"Pinecrest's Philosophy
Pinecrest Founder

Edna Mae Dye
It begins early in life- the hunger for knowledge.
Children are naturally eager to learn. At Pinecrest, we strive to encourage that enthusiasm.
From the day Pinecrest was founded in 1951, our mission has been clear: to provide a rich educational experience for the whole child. Over the years, we have had the pleasure of preparing thousands of students to take an active and effective role in today's world.
Today, our academic standards have evolved into a comprehensive and exciting curriculum that combines traditional principles of education with the latest technological advancements. Of course, outstanding teachers are the key. At, Pinecrest every child is taught by superior teachers who know your child as a unique individual.
Since every child learns best in an environment that is stimulating yet comfortable, we hold firm to the philosophy that schools should be designed around the needs of children. Therefore, each Pinecrest campus has been designed from the bottom up, to provide an optimum educational experience - not just every year, but every day, so that children actually look forward to getting up for school, because their school is Pinecrest.
