About Pinnacle Elementary

Pinnacle Elementary is a School-Wide Title I school.  Our student population consists of PreK-Fifth Grade Students.  We are located in Pinnacle, North Carolina. At Pinnacle Elementary, we strive to put children first.

We have been recognized by the state of NC as a Multi-Tiered System of Support Green Ribbon School.  

Our instructional emphasis is child-centered. Children learn through life applicable experiences using a balanced literacy curriculum, math manipulatives, hands-on science, and other activities which involve active learning.  

In order to meet children’s individual needs, we have teachers specializing in speech, academically gifted, and learning disabilities. Students receive daily small group instruction tailored to their individual learning needs in reading and math.  All students attend guidance, art, music, physical education, library, and computer classes once per week instructed by teachers certified in these areas. We also have a computer lab available for students’ use and at least four Chromebooks in each classroom. 

In addition to classroom academics, some of the opportunities available to students are Elementary Battle of the Books, Reading Counts, Jr. Blast, and quarterly award ceremonies in which students are recognized for academic and behavioral success. Students are rewarded monthly for meeting homework and behavior goals. 

Our Parent Teacher Organization is an integral part of our total school program. Each year the PTO sponsors many fun-filled events for our students and the community. Proceeds from these activities in the past have been used to purchase computers, playground equipment, and numerous instructional supplies. In addition, the PTO provides volunteers for classroom activities, tutoring, and many other services. We believe educating children is a joint effort between home and school. We highly value and encourage parental involvement.

The faculty and staff at Pinnacle Elementary School strive to provide a quality education for students. We are committed to making our school an exemplary school in every aspect.
