School Reviews

Pingree has proven to be all we wanted in an independent school. They teach a diverse curriculum inclusive of all. They promote independent young minds and the school has been very progressive with the online curriculum they implemented during COVID. We have 2 ninth graders and they have been amazed at the level of learning they have gotten versus some of their friends at other schools. We are grateful for our selection of Pingree. As foe as athletics, the school pride and support is fantastic as well.
