Pine Island Elementary prepares our students for an academic and social education. Establishing high expectations which are communicated through a clearly stated mission and vision, all stakeholders are aware of our school's intended purpose. Working together as a Professional Learning Community to ensure all students learn, our talented faculty prepares Pine Island students to conquer today's rigorous standards. With the integration of technology, Kagan Structures, as well as STEM classes, Pine Island students receive the skills needed to be successful in the 21st Century. Just as important as creating high expectations is instilling the values of Kind, Caring, Loving, Respectful, Responsible, and Safe. These are character traits that are not just words but are truly put into action every day at school and throughout the community. This is evident in our school's eighteenth year success as a state graded "A" school.
