Pine Lake Preparatory Lower School was established in 2007, serving kindergarten through second grade. In 2008, the current campus open its doors to over 700 students and expanded through the fifth grade. In subsequent years, the Lower School has grown in both breadth and scope, developing into a school of excellence.
Pine Lake Preparatory Lower School is the beginning, and we are proud to serve as the foundation on which children build their educational lives. Pine Lake is unique in that we educate students in kindergarten through high school, so we are committed to build upon each school’s success to develop the whole child. We are led by the school's core values to Prepare, Nurture, Lead, and Engage students. We view these values through a holistic lens in which students explore core subjects, arts education, technology and the Spanish language. Challenging our students through a rigorous curriculum, they are prepared for middle school and beyond.
We encourage our children to build upon their interests and to reach out for new experiences. Band, Chorus, Strings, Student Council, Junior Engineers,Math League, Odyssey of the Mind, Science Olympiad, Safety Patrol,Drama and After-School Explorations all serve to create opportunities for leadership and engagement in our learning community. Working together, we can ensure the students of Pine Lake continue to achieve their highest potential both within and outside of the classroom.
Embedded within the core values is a positive culture in which our children develop as students and as people. We recognize that we educate the whole child, and we are committed to this cause. We celebrate Pine Lake’s success, which is possible through our involved families,dedicated Academic Partners and talented students.
