At Pinewood, this year comes with great excitement.

We welcome over 500 students representing 42 nationalities to our school.

We inaugurate a beautiful Early Years and Elementary School on the new Anatolia campus.

We commenced construction on a purpose-built Secondary School on the Anatolia campus.

But the real buzz for us is around our focus on relationships. 

As we go through our 7-year re-accreditation with the Middle States Association in the U.S., we have made a commitment to centering our work around authentic relationships between students, parents/guardians, faculty, staff, leadership, colleagues, and the community in ways that intentionally enhance student learning and student success at Pinewood. 

Our advancements in facilities and culture are focused on what Pinewood already does exceptionally well. As a non-profit, day and boarding PK-12 school offering an enriched American college preparatory curriculum through the International Baccalaureate (IB) lens across all grade levels, we consciously work to support students as adaptable global citizens. We do this because we believe that building a culture of belonging to a shared, inclusive, and sustainable global community is of paramount importance to young people today. 

The faculty, staff, and I are so grateful for the overwhelmingly collective support that is consistently demonstrated by our Pinewood community. Be assured that we will continue to listen, learn, and improve alongside them throughout the new school year, too.

I invite you to browse our website to learn more about Pinewood.

Warm wishes to all for a year of wisdom, strength, and humor.
