PLE is not a school that looks at a child as an individual. They teach to the minimum state standards and that's it. They do not look at a child as an individual to see what their needs are but as just a body. It was a horrible experience dealing with teachers and the administration at this school.
... Read more Minimal extra curricular activities to speak of and please check out the website, says a lot about the school compared to other schools in the district. A bare minimum effort is put forth at this school and it shows from the top down. No initiatives have been taken to make this a great school. If you're OK with subpar average at best and this is your feeder school, then there you go. Since we do have a choice, choose wisely and do your homework first. That's where I made my mistake. The leadership of this school sets the tone for the entire school. Meet and ask questions first to see what you're getting into. That should be enough to steer you clear. Absolutely not pushing kids to do their best. Wished I would have done my homework first and saved a lot of wasted time. So glad to be gone! Read less

We moved from Pine Lane after four years and had no idea how poor the education was at Pine Lane until moving.

Very child focused school. Because it is a 4,5,6 building, it has a reputation for being a little 'tougher' than a K-6 building, but I think that it really means that kids are held accountable for their actions more, rather than being given lots of get out jail free cards. Teachers & administration
