I can't say enough great things about Pinewoods. Our children have been there for 3 years and 1 year, and have absolutely thrived. Don't be turned off by some of the bad reviews from a few years ago - there was a lot of drama, but that

Pinewoods Montessori has always been a terrific school. Our family had been so happy here and our children have learned so much, not just academics, but how to treat people in a kind way. The parent board, that "bought "the school from the founder, is destroying that peaceful vision in action.

We have recently found out that not only has the board ignored their contract with the previous owner and paid her almost nothing of the significant sale price, but they are also suspected of falsifying documents and not being honest with parents about the finances of the school.
Their own web site does not contain accurate information! Two of the teachers do not have a recognized Montessori credential and the school has lost its status with the American Montessori Society because of it. The new head of school has almost no leadership experience and it shows. The previous head of school has been made the scapegoat for the many problems this school has had in the past year and the problems just keep getting worse all the time.
We are pulling our kids from this mess. But the board says we have to pay our full tuition amount to get.
Please be wary of this school. It used to be great but not any more!!!!

My daughter joined pinewoods when she was 18 months and is just now turning 3. We feel like part of a warm community, with teachers dedicated to her well-being and education. They are helping her to become a really neat person!

Our family can highly recommend Pinewoods Montessori School. Our teachers are fantastic- caring, dedicated, and always ready with a smile. Our child is so happy and learning so very much. In fact, we just completed our parent-teacher conferences and are even more impressed by what our son is being exposed to and the level of professionalism from the teachers.
Our parent community is just wonderful, from our parent board to the PTO. We have found many ways to be involved in the school and have met so many people who have becomes friends outside of school as well as at the many school gatherings.
If you are looking for a school in our community, we suggest you check out this incredible school. You won't find a better setting!

It is so discouraging to see that the newer so called montessori school in our area has to sell itself by berating an outstanding school like PINEWOODS MONTESSORI. Since 1992, this school has offered a excellent education to pre schoolers as well as elementary students. All of the faculty are college educated, most have master's degrees (the director at the other "montessori" school doesn't even have a college degree!) and all have at least 5 years of teaching experience. Our director has always been fair, respectful, and had the best interests of the children at the heart of every decision.
My suggestion to other parents is not to believe everything you read on the internet. Pinewoods is an incredible education, with such a peaceful and respectful way of working with students. The other parents are truly concerned about children and not about making a scene and creating drama Observe for yourself and you"ll see and understand what a Montessori school should really be about.
We've been here for several years and will stay at long as we can.(They plan to go through 8th grade!)

We are very, very pleased at Pinewoods Montessori School. Our son has made wonderful friends, is learning at an amazing rate, and looks forward to going to school every day. We have enjoyed all the opportunities for us to be involved in the school as well.
Pinewoods is the only AMS associated school in Orange Co. As parents we appreciate the dedication the teachers have to their students and to the Montessori method.
Our 4 years at Pinewoods have been just wonderful. We encourage parents to observe and see for yourself what real Montessori is about.

This is just a wonderful school. Since 1992, it has offered the best in authentic Montessori education to the Hillsborough area. The dedicated staff of teachers, most of whom have advanced degrees in addition to Montessori certification, are committed to maintaining a peaceful, respectful, and safe school for our children. And the children always come first in every consideration. As parents, we have been delighted with the regular information about our child, the parent education classes, and the opportunities to volunteer.
The program provided exceptional academic instruction while teaching to the whole child. We only wish that some adults could be as respectful and adept at solving problems as our 6 year old from her 3 years at Pinewoods.
We highly recommend this wonderful school.

Pros: Outstanding group of teachers and staff. Great parent involvement.

Kids are treated differently according to teacher personal preferences. The only rule is that you pay the tuition and follow the directors ever changing rules. Last year even the police was called to the school, during class time, because of a discussion between the director and parents!!!
