My child has been going to Pinnacle last three years and has advanced tremendously academically. They follow a very well structured program and makes the child reach his/her full potential by identifying their strengths accurately and working on their weakness.

It feels good knowing that we have a network of fantastic teachers, administrators, and staff members who continue to help us to raise our children to be a successful, confident, and friendly young man.

From the day our son started the school he was happy in every way. The progress we have seen in him in the last four months in every area of learning is excellent.​

Why Private Schools are Worth the Cost?

Better Education

Private schools, since they don’t have to rely only on public funding, private schools are able to hire the best teachers to ensure that your children have the best education possible. Private schools focus on preparing their students for college (and life).

Different classes

Private schools offer different classes than many public schools. Though children will still learn English, Science, and Math, independent schools may also offer some other classes to help prepare your children for work, life, and financial freedom.

Better classroom sizes

Most private schools have fewer students per teacher. This ensures that your children are learning properly, instead of getting lost in the public-school system. Students who struggle in public school often glide through school without really understanding what they are learning.

Higher test scores

Children who attend an independent school are more likely to score higher on national tests than their public-school counterparts. Many parents want their children to be able to succeed so they prefer to send them to private schools that can prove that their children test well.

More extracurricular activities

Private schools can offer many extracurricular activities. Even some that are uncommon and won’t be found in any public schools. If a child wants to try an activity, they might just be able to find it (or start a new club) at a private independent school near me.

Tradition

Many parents who went to independent school (as well as their parents before them) feel lucky to have had that opportunity. They want the same for their children and will gladly pay to give them the same traditions that they had.
