This interdisciplinary curriculum is bolstered by a wealth of opportunities to apply coursework outside of the classroom. Perhaps our most unique resource for experiential learning is our beautiful 67-acre campus, which is nestled in the woods and located a few minutes from the shoreline. From second graders raising plants in our greenhouse for a local food bank, to sixth graders venturing out to the pond to test for dissolved oxygen levels, to ninth graders completing biology labs aboard our boat, Quest,
in Little Narragansett Bay, students have learning experiences that not only help them more deeply engage with academic content but also develop a love for the natural world and an abiding sense of place.
But above all else, what makes Pine Point such a special place is our school’s strong sense of community. Students are not merely faces in the hallway or names on a class roster; at Pine Point, they are truly known by all members of the community. These connections are not accidental; rather, relationships flourish because of our emphasis on character development, social and emotional growth, and our commitment to our core values: respect, integrity, moral courage, and excellence.
I have been a part of the Pine Point community since 1996, and the goodness of this warm and inclusive community still amazes me every day. I encourage you to visit Pine Point to see how our motto, “Strong Minds, Caring Hearts” guides everything we do.
