Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Pineville Independent School, home of the Mountain Lions!

We are a small preschool through 12th grade school where excellence is part of our vision and goal.

We have a unique opportunity to foster growth and excellence in your child from Preschool to graduation, and we take pride in having a family atmosphere steeped in strong traditions.  I am truly blessed to be a part of the Pineville family.

I want to welcome all of our Pineville families to our school.

We are a combination of caring, skilled staff members dedicated to serving your child and committed to working with you towards excellence and fun-loving, enthusiastic students who strive to meet high expectations.  Every person in our building is working towards making our school and our students the best they can possibly be.

At our small school, we believe that everyone is someone important; thus, we must show kindness and respect to everyone.  We want each of our students to work hard by themselves, but we also want them to work hard with their peers, teammates, and friends so that we can have a place where everyone is welcome, happy, and learning.  We also want to create a place where our students are exposed to opportunities to help them excel as citizens, leaders, athletes, and scholars.  We know, however, that all of this would be impossible without a team effort.

You are encouraged to participate in school activities and be involved in your child’s education.  I look forward to continuing to grow as a part of the Pineville family, getting to know all our families, and working with our children.  Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have a question or concern.
