About Pine Hills Elementary School
Completely 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.

News and information
Pine Hills hosts health-conscious community
Helping to lead
by example, Pine Hills Elementary School
welcomed a group of healthy minded community
partners May 3 for an announcement of a new
initiative aimed at improving the well-being of
communities throughout the Capital Region.
Pine Hills raises $15,000 to help bring
fresh water to African nation --
three years of coin drives, bottle deposit drives, bake sales, garage
sales and pancake breakfasts – and plenty of synergy – but Pine Hills
Elementary School raised enough money to build a fresh-water well for
people in rural Tanzania.
