Environment

Mark Twain said it best, “It’s not where you are, but who you’re with that matters most,”  and at Pinnacle Prep School our talented teachers and staff creates an environment that encourages learning in all its forms. feels more like family.

The proven teaching strategies and emphasis on each child sets Pinnacle Prep School apart from all other schools. This is also evident in our schools’ social responsibility program where we participate in community service and volunteer work.

“When the atmosphere encourages learning, the learning is inevitable.”

― Elizabeth Foss

Technology

Technology is constantly changing and growing, and our aim is to encourage our students to evolve alongside it. To support this goal, we teach our first graders how to type. We also integrate Tablets, iPads, and computers with our curriculum in every grade level.

We have also incorporated web-based teaching resources for subjects such as science, math and language arts, and during summer months conduct camps to encourage students to push beyond their limits and step forward into the future.

Extra-curricular Activities

We place an important emphasis on extra-curricular activities and physical fitness. Students participate in physical education in the form of running, swimming, soccer, bicycling, teeter ball and basketball. With our NBA basketball hoop, batting cage and soccer field we are able to offer a variety of sports and activities for our students. In addition, with basketball and soccer coaches and swimming instructors on staff, we are able to conduct a variety of extra-curricular and summertime activities to propel the physical and mental growth of our students.

Strong bodies help sustain strong minds, and we aim to support and cultivate both.

University Studies


For the University Studies program, students learn about different institutions of higher education, both here in the US and abroad. By studying the history of these institutions, describing what they are most known for, and identifying both the school’s admissions criteria and the degree programs offered, they become increasingly prepared to make informed choices about their own post-high school plans.

Orphanage Studies


For this project, students are asked to report on different orphanages around the world. Eventually, they report on orphanages from each major world region. In doing this project, students develop a sense of compassion for children in need, and come to appreciate the quality of life they themselves enjoy.

Career Studies


When doing Career Studies projects, students are asked to intensively research the diverse career paths possible to them. From STEM-based professions to those in the performing arts, students report on and listen to presentations about these jobs, broadening their visions of the future and opening their eyes to the numerous possibilities.

World Studies


World Studies projects require the student to learn about and subsequently present information on the many different countries in our increasingly-connected world. This fosters multiculturalism and cross-cultural understanding, promoting the growth of our students as global citizens they’ll need to be in the 21st century.

Religion Studies


As there are many different approaches to worship worldwide, the Religion Studies project allows students to explore the rich and diverse heritage of different faiths. It is through this kind of understanding that our students develop non-reactionary approaches to those with different belief systems, understanding that an underlying theme of general good and humanity is at the core of all faiths.

Communication Studies


Communication Studies’ focus is on our manners and etiquette course. Students read and discuss Dale Carnegie’s best-selling book since 1936, How to Win Friends and Influence People. By discussing Carnegie’s belief in self-improvement, and completing projects reflecting the lessons learned throughout the reading, students can communicate in a way that allows them to form deeper more rewarding relationships.
