About Our School

The brand new Pineville Elementary opened its doors to students in August, 2013.  The school was built on property that is adjacent to the site of the old school.  A new baseball park now occupies the old lot.  Pineville is a neighborhood school located near the intersection of Pineville-Matthews Road and Polk Street.

Mission Statement:   ​

It is the mission of Pineville Elementary to partner with students, parents, staff, and community members to ensure that each student has the opportunity to achieve his / her academic and social potential.  We will engage students at their individual level; acknowledging learning styles, interests, and cultural influences. Our success will be measured by national, state, and local assessments.  We will eliminate barriers that impede students from being successful.

We believe:

  • Students learn through active engagement, utilizing appropriate materials, ideas, and resources.
  • Students must feel secure, successful, and challenged.
  • The diversity of our school community enhances the education and experiences of our students.
  •  High expectations and challenges result in higher student performance and improved student learning.
  • All students can learn anything they put their minds to, hearts into, and hands on. 


Pineville Elementary School is widely diverse. Our school is represented by more than 40 different countries as well as 9 different spoken languages!​
