"PWA and staff are compassionate, resilient, and so dedicated to their kids. Thank you all for what you're doing to give our kids some normalcy, parents some sanity, and most importantly, keeping them safe".You chose a school, and you trust. You see your child grow, evolve, and develop, but this first-hand experience has been extraordinary. The teachers have been extraordinarily prepared, guiding, and supportive of all the children and parents. I talk to friends and family, and they are all amazed at the commitment and quality we are getting from our school BIA. It is a complete program with academics, exercise, fun, and love. I couldn't be happier or more convinced we chose the best school. And couldn't be more impressed at their commitment during these trying times. Thank you BIA, you have been terrific when we most needed you.
A year ago! We still miss you and Mrs. Nathalie! The kids are doing great so far this year in first and fourth grades online! We miss you and talk about you often. Thanks again for being so wonderful and shaping the beginning of their school careers in such a gentle and caring way.

My two grandsons attended Pines West Academy. The older one just graduated VPK. Although we did not realize at the time, Ms. Vaiju did a great job getting him ready for Kindergarten. It is strange that sometimes you don't realize how much someone has touched your child's life until you see it in action. He graduated feeling confident and ready for the work they are doing and has adjusted to public school so well. I really feel that the teachers at Pines West have played a very important part in that adjustment. Our little one is just starting. The school offers such a variety of things to learn even at a young age. We are so glad that this school has been a part of our family I talk to friends and family, and they are all amazed at the commitment and quality we are getting from our school BIA.

This is my second daughter attending Pines West, and I am beyond satisfied with this school. My daughter's vocabulary is beyond her years; she reads, writes, counts, and adds. She absolutely loves going to school to learn. Aside from the academics, the teachers at Pines West go above and beyond to teach the children manners, kindness, and empathy. They are also beyond loving. My older daughter loves visiting till this day two years later. I am beyond happy with this school. I may not have any more children to attend; however, I will always recommend Pines West to family and friends.
My son Logan has been attending Pine's West Academy since he was two years old and will soon be starting kindergarten. I am extremely confident that he has the tools and knowledge to succeed and thrive as he continues a learning life. The Pines West curriculum, Teri Sousa, and all of the teachers are amazing. Collectively, they help to build autonomous, thoughtful, curious, and independent students. My wife, Logan, and I are grateful every day that we found Pines West Academy. Thank you so much Pines West!
"Ms. Vaiju has been a blessing in Ethan's preparation for Kindergarten. She made me aware of his challenges and strengths, which in return, made it easier for me to help him. Pines West Academy's curriculum, along with Ms. Vaiju's guidance, has more than prepared Ethan for Kindergarten."
I love Mrs. Teri and Ms. Sineidy. I know my son is in such a loving environment and is learning so much! I love PWA and feel that it is more than a school... It is truly a family! I tell everyone how much I love the school and everything that my son is learning and everything my other son has learned from here. Without teachers at PWA, it would be just another preschool. The faculty is what truly makes it such an incredible place!
Mr. Guerra is a very loving, kind, and friendly teacher. She is firm, yet exciting and my son absolutely loves her; he recites what he learned at home. He looks forward to coming to school, even on the weekends. I love this school, and the rest of the staff are very friendly and kind.
Our son has gone to this Academy for the past two years and we are extremely grateful that we found this school. Every teacher has been amazing and have played such a huge role in our sons growth. They upload photos/videos of his day and new projects every week. We are extremely grateful for them!"
I can not give Pines West Academy enough stars! No, 5 is not enough! We have been with the school a total of almost 8 years between our two boys. After attending other preschools and then finding Pines West Academy it was our saving grace! The teachers are loving, and caring. They, as a whole, focus on every developmental need of EVERY child. Cognitive, language, speech, and motor skills. As well as the very important emotional and social development aspects. The teachers do this with great care and grace! You always feel like your child is their main priority. The knowledge the children receive is very evident when you speak with them and listen to the way they think and feel about things. The parent reports also allow you to see the progress your child makes through their time at PWA".
This is hands down the best preschool in the area! We had tried to get my daughter in this school years ago but they were completely booked. My son attended this year and we've been so impressed. We love the teaching method they use, which focuses heavily on communication. Ms Teri, the staff and teachers are phenomenal! I love the open communication and updates/photos I receive throughout the day. My son loves his school- he's had two teachers and loved them both! Overall 5 stars🙌🏽❤"
You will not find anything better in the area. This school is outstanding. I’d wish their curriculum will go further pre-K into elementary. The staff is everything".
If I could add more stars I would, my son started at 2 years old and I was VERY nervous. He now just graduated after a few years and few teachers later there is nothing negative I could say about this place. I refer everyone to the school because the staff, the teachers, the curriculum is top of the line you won't find better anywhere else. They all love and care for the kids so much and it shows my son loves it there as do we!"
5.0 star rating11/3/2021 Pines West Academy fosters an incredible learning environment based on educational excellence, discipline and an loving environment. The amazing staff with so much heart and caring mindset allows our daughters strive. After completion of her daycare through pre-k studies at PWA, our oldest daughter just won student of the month award amongst her 1st grade class in her new school. The staff anchored by principal Mrs Terri is really committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment and we're very thankful to her and the whole team for all the great job".
Both of my daughters went to Pines West Academy. The little one is still there. The education, care and dedication to the kids is second to none. We recently were accepted into a top charter school and our daughter is so much ahead of most of the kids in the same class thanks to Pines West. We’ve from so many parents that public and charter elementary schools are always excited about getting kids from PWA because they are good kids that are well behaved and happy kids. And in the charter school the teacher told us parents that in 28 years of teaching kindergarten she’s never had such a kind and nice group of kids… it’s no surprise that she has 3 kids that all came from Pines West Academy. I’m so grateful to PWA for treating and caring for my kids as if it were there own. I would highly recommend this school to anyone. And they have bilingual teachers in each class!!"
Thank You Ms. G. It was such a great experience with you transitioning Kais into the school environment and achieving major learning milestones example vocab, social development, intellectual growth, etc. We look forward to seeing you again in my daughter’s time. I wish you good luck in your career endeavors".
“Gracias a Edu1st aprendí a explorar mis capacidades, descubrir nuevos caminos en la enseñanza, así como a perseguir mis metas. Esta familia me ha dado la oportunidad de empezar de nuevo. Estoy feliz de pertenecer a Edu1st!”
“I always dreamed about being a teacher ever since I was a little girl. The VESS curriculum has been an incredible learning experience for me, and to use it with my infants in the classroom is absolutely amazing. I come to work with a big smile on my face and leave with an even bigger one. I am so grateful to have found this little gem!”
“Education first has been a family for me since the very beginning of my journey at this company. As a mother, as a teacher, as a professional, I am very thankful for the way Edu1st has impacted my life. VESS is a way of life, and it has dramatically complemented my values as a human being. It has given me the opportunity to share those values with my students in meaningful, creative, and provocative ways that I would never have imagined. I am thankful to Edu1st for awakening my real vocation, expanding my knowledge, and helping me grow as a person.”
