I attended Pinnacle from prekindergarton-8th grade. Through out the years I was always friends with the teachers and it helped me to do well in school, but it did also bring me away from my parents. All of my family has attended here and loved it, but as the years go by they are getting less and less strict with the kids learning and more with them feeling like they can tell the teachers EVERYTHING!! They no longer have uniform and are seeming more like a public school then a charder school.

The administrative staff at this school are poor at communicating with parents. They are also too interested in personal business, finances, and other areas of families. None of which has to do with educating the child. They are not supportive of parenting, they actually try to parent children, even leaving parents out of the loop when dealing with situations concerning the child. Organization and communication is very poor parents are not informed of events in a timely manner, and then are penalized for not participating. Sometimes notifications are given less than 24 hours in advanceThere is an emphasis on extracurricular activity, but little importance placed on academics.
