About Pine Hills Elementary School
rebuilt in 2005-06 as part of the district's
sweeping facilities project, the former Public School 16
reopened in the winter of 2007 as Pine Hills Elementary
School. Pine Hills is a neighborhood school serving
students in prekindergarten-grade 6 with 50 full-time and
14 part-time staff. Our students come from a wide
variety of backgrounds and experiences.
The school's mission is to
provide a community of support for the “whole child” as
it strives for academic excellence on the journey of
life-long learning. To achieve that mission,
administrators, faculty and staff work hard at
establishing a learning community that actively develops
and implements best practices.
"The 7 Habits of Highly Effective
People" are a critical aspect of Pine Hills, and they
are taught and practiced daily.
Absence from school
If your child is absent
from school for any reason, call the school at (518) 475-6725
during the morning and provide a written excuse when
your child returns to school.
