Excellence and Equity in Education

Welcome to Pinewood Middle School!

On behalf of the staff at Pinewood Middle School, I am very excited to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year! We hope you have had a restful and relaxing summer break, and are ready to kick off another amazing year of successful learning experiences. 

At Pinewood, we strive to create a safe and positive learning environment where students are challenged academically and feel a sense of belonging with our school community. Our highly trained staff utilize a rigorous curriculum and a collaborative selection of teaching strategies to engage students and prepare them for future success. We also believe that students learn best when they feel connected with their school environment. We create this feeling by using Restorative Practices and Capturing Kids' Hearts strategies every day, which allow students to build strong relationships and to feel supported. Our core values at Pinewood are to be a T.E.A.M., be Teachable, be Empowered, be Accepting, and be Motivated!

We look forward to working alongside you to ensure your student reaches their potential. I encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns that may arise this year, and feedback is always welcomed. 

Looking forward to a fantastic year! Go Falcons!!


Andrew Kolzow, Principal
