    "This is a school where students self-teach. The "teachers" assign notes from the textbook and the students spend the class writing. Math teachers don't quite understand the math themselves, but don't worry, these kids are bright enough to figure it out on their own! The students are not treated like individuals, they are numbers-both scores and money. If you have trouble, forget it! Nobody wants to help. You're the square peg, trying to fit in the round hole; maybe this school isn't for you. Carry on and teach yourself! Don't blemish Pine View's scores because it'll make Dr. Covert look bad."

    "As a former alumni with currently in academia, PV is, simply put, an excellent school. Unfortunately, many people do not realize or fully understand that PV is very different from other elite schools. This is not a place where students will thrive if they are not willing to put egos aside. The faculty is highly trained, often better at their job than many tenured faculty at elite universities (personal experience of many PV alum). Students truly learn how to prepare for the global turn in economics, business, and culture. The only draw back is that if students have attended PV their entire life, they may become cloistered from other realities. Aside from the phenomenal education students receive (much better than the maj of bachelor-granting R1 universities), students here should receive lessons on the importance of failure. After learning about Higher Ed inside out, Pine View is unsurpassable in quality. Just make sure you encourage your kids to maintain a healthy life/work balance by making friends with students from other schools or pursuing an interest outside of school."

    "This is our daughter's first year at Pine View. We moved to the area for her to attend the school. We are very happy with the overall leadership of the school. With a new principal this year, you would expect some snafus, but there were none! Kudos to Dr. Covert! Our daughter teacher, Ms. Cookerly has been wonderful, helping us navigate our way through the year. Academically, it was just what our daughter needed. She looks forward to more challenging work in years to come, but it was a good way to start her tenure at Pine View. We look forward to the years ahead."

    "As a parent of 2 Pine View graduates I have been extremely happy with the education they received. They learned great study habits that have made college easier for them. It is a wonderful embracing school for the children, they are free to be smart and be proud of their accomplishments. PV is not for children who are not motivated and have been pushed by their parents. Make sure the school is the right fit for your child not for you."

    "Pine View is a wonderful school for fostering learning. We enjoy the relaxed campus atmosphere and the philosophy of going 212 degrees, "the extra degree" that makes water turn into steam, which can then power engines."
