Pinecrest has some good aspects, but the majority is wretched. Some of the teachers actually care and want to develop relations with students, but others are there because it is a job and the bare minimum is only considered.

Pinecrest High is too large. The teachers are overburdened and the classes are large. Great curriculum and sports program-too many students.

This semester she feels lost, with some teachers who appear cold, kids with cell phones on all the time, and a lot of inappropriate language, etc. I tried to complain ...  Read more

Pinecrest High is a very large school, in fact overcrowded. Moore County really needs to consider building another high school with appropriate teacher/students ratio per classroom. For the students from the West End area and the huge problem with the morning traffic on 211 near Taylortown/Lowes Food, ...  Read more

Without a Doubt, I have to say that the one thing to me that stands out about this school is the Excellent Athletic Program. With almost every team making it to the playoffs this past year, I must say the Coaches, Players, etc. are doing a marvelous job.
