About Pine Hills Elementary School
rebuilt in 2005-06 as part of the district's
sweeping facilities project, the former Public School 16
reopened in the winter of 2007 as Pine Hills Elementary
School. Pine Hills is a neighborhood school serving
students in prekindergarten-grade 6 with 50 full-time and
14 part-time staff. Our students come from a wide
variety of backgrounds and experiences.
The school's mission is to
provide a community of support for the “whole child” as
it strives for academic excellence on the journey of
life-long learning. To achieve that mission,
administrators, faculty and staff work hard at
establishing a learning community that actively develops
and implements best practices.
