GRADE 9-12

Students in grades 9 through 12 select courses during the spring prior to the upcoming academic year. Guidance for the yearly course selections and the development of student four-year plans is provided by the school in cooperation with the parents and teachers.

Pinewood students in grades 11-12 have the choice between the following courses of study:

1. Full IB Diploma Program
2. IB Diploma Courses and American High School Diploma Combined
3. American High School Diploma


Aswell as school grades, the HAL (Habits & Attitudes to Learning) rubric identifies many of the dispositions and approaches to learning that students need to develop if they are to cultivate a growth mindset and become independent lifelong learners. It is used by teachers for assigning a habits and attitudes to learning grade (from 1-7). Students can also use the rubric to self-assess or set personal growth goals.
