Pine Tree Hill Elementary helps all students develop the world class skills, life, and career characteristics of the Profile of the SC Graduate by implementing the 21st Century learning environment. Through rigorous project based learning experiences, we inspire students to think critically and solve real world problems. Students collaborate together to practice critical thinking skills and collaborate with peers abroad through technology to gain a global perspective in solving real world problems. We utilize one-to-one computing from kindergarten to 5th grade for differentiated learning experiences. In Genius House, students utilize one hour a week to complete research in an area of their personal interest and learn perseverance, good work ethic and self-direction at the same time.
