Welcome to Pine Street School,
Our aim is to create a secure, caring environment in which students optimize their development intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. Students are encouraged to inquire, think critically, work collaboratively, and to construct meaning, reflect and take action, all the while having their natural curiosity in the world around them stimulated.
We seek to give all our students the opportunity to experience a unique international education and to acquire the personal attributes, outlook and knowledge that will equip them to play an active part in the construction of tomorrow’s world. We encourage open communication among students, parents and teachers in a school climate that fosters the continued development of international understanding. We value parents as key players in this rigorous and inspiring learning experience.
I look forward to sharing the Pine Street School experience with you and your children, and welcome you to discover the brilliant and forward thinking benefits of the International Baccalaureate approach.
Eileen Baker, Head of School
