We have loved our 5 years at PGE. Our children count Piney Grove as part of their family. It is a true community with great staff, teachers, parents, and kids. The PTA is very active and have helped our kids not miss a thing even with all the budget cuts over the years. The principal and vice principal are an awesome team. Every teacher we have had was a perfect fit for our children. We can't say enough great things about this school and the role they have played in our lives. Thanks PGE!

I am so impressed with Piney Grove! Wish it went through high school! The administrative staff is caring and attends to issues that arise. Between my kids we have had four happy years there with the most amazing teachers. They seem to have a knack for placing teachers with the grade level for which they are best suited! After speaking to parents with children in other local schools, I feel PGE adds extra activities that other area elementary schools do not. My kids are testing above average already- thank you Piney Grove!

Our beloved principal has left and we cetainly miss her. The school will never be the same without her warm personality, energy, and focus on kids. Big shoes to fill and so far the replacement feet fall really short. Luckily the staff is still in place and they pick up where she leaves off.

PGE is a WONDERFUL school. All 3 of my daughters graduated from here and we are so grateful for the great education they received. Dr.Sikes and the entire staff made all of our years there great and very memorable. Thanks for everything and keep up the good work!!

Piney Grove is a wonderful school. The principal knows all 700+ students by name. My two kids are at opposite ends of the spectrim with different ability levels and different personalities. I feel like the principal, Dr. Sikes, has matched each of my kids with the best available teachers for their learning styles. I served as volunteer coordinator, and parents at this school are wonderful!

I love the small town feel of our school. Although there are almost 800 students everyone seems connected.

I absolutely LOVE Piney Grove. I have two girls there that are in 1st and 2nd and they both started K there. All the teachers I have gotten to know are awesome and really care for the kids. The principal knows all the children by name and remembers their parents and even the cars they drive if they pick their children up from school. This is a school that definitely cares for the students. I can't wait for my younger two to go there.

I love Piney Grove. I currently have two children there and their experiences there have been wonderful. The emphasis that the school places on science and math is evident. I would recomend this school to anyone.

Dr. Sikes is a fantastic principal. She knows every student and parent that walks through the doors of Piney Grove and it is obvious that she loves her job. I had and 2nd grader and a 5th grader attend Piney Grove kast year, and both of my children liked their teachers and made great strides forward in their education. Great job, Dr. Sikes!

Our experience at PGE has been wonderful. We have gotten personal attention from staff members and there is a neighborhood feeling about the school that has one common agenda in mind - the well-being of the children. This agenda starts with the principle and filters all the way down. The principle at PGE is ALL about the kids - not the parents, not the money, not the politics. You can't go wrong with this agenda.

We brought our children to PG from private school so our son could receive special education. The longer we stay the more impressed I am with how the teachers care for my children. The lower grades have good class size, but the 4th & 5th grades are a bit crowded.The principal in the greatest! She truly cares and listens to parents and children. The parental involvement is overwhelming.

Piney is great. We aren't from around here so it's scary when you have to find a school for you child. We tried a Private Christian school first, we love Jesus but the school was weak and we wanted more. We wanted our child to be happy, challenged and excited every morning when he went to school. The teachers are great, and you have an opportunity to get to know them all if you are active with the school. My child is challenged and loves AR tests, the teachers use a lot of manipulatives when teaching. Enjoyed--seeing the juggling act, switching for enrichment activities on a 7 day schedule, (gym, music, art, computers, media, etc) loved his class and teachers-yes most classes have an asst. up to 3rd grade and the classes are under 20-WOW! The principal is awesome-very energetic and pleasant and doesn't sound like a car salesman. Fantastic school!
