Pinewood Preparatory School will be hosting its annual Rising Ninth Grade Open House on March 12 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The event is open to families with children who will be in the ninth grade next school year. The Open House will provide an opportunity to learn about Pinewood's programs, tour the campus and meet with faculty and students.
The Open House will kick off for parents in Smith Hall, with an informational session by Babette Hamilton, Head of High School. Hamilton will discuss the scheduling process and offer tips for parents and students to make a successful transition to high school. After the session, guests are invited to tour the campus and then join teachers, coaches, and students in Freedom Hall.
During the parent session, students will visit Freedom Hall, where they can meet teachers, coaches, students, “Blue Crew” leaders and the Pinewood robot. Guest students are encouraged to join current Pinewood students in wearing neon attire, and are welcome to bring a friend.
Complementing the Upper School's college preparatory curriculum are 15 Advanced Placement courses and new offerings including a merit scholarship, expanded Global Studies program and class trips.
Enrollment for the 2013-14 school year is currently underway. Pinewood Preparatory School is located at 1114 Orangeburg Rd. in Summerville. For more information, contact Nicole Bailey at 843-376-0142 ext. 2001 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit the website at www.pinewoodprep.com.
