Welcome from Our Head of School

Pine Point Head of School Diana OwenDear Families,

Thank you for your interest in Pine Point School where we have been educating students in preschool through 9th grade since 1948. I have been a part of this community since 1996, and the goodness of this warm and inclusive place still amazes me every day. When you visit campus I am sure you will see how our motto, “Strong Minds, Caring Hearts,” guides everything we do.

Our innovative academic program prepares students to excel in secondary school and beyond. With our progressive approach to teaching we emphasize creativity, collaboration and compassion. While mastering traditional skills and concepts is at the heart of our curriculum, we also take an interdisciplinary and often a project-based approach to learning that encourages students to explore the relationships between areas of knowledge. Pine Point teachers work collaboratively to integrate content from many subject areas, and as students compare different ways of thinking and recognize patterns across disciplines, they also learn to grasp concepts deeply and reach solutions creatively.

Students at Pine Point are not merely faces in the hallway or names on a class roster; they are truly known by all members of the community. These connections are not accidental. Relationships flourish because we emphasize character development, social and emotional growth, and our commitment to our core values: respect, integrity, moral courage, and excellence.
