Welcome to Pine Grove School

In the bright, cheerful atmosphere of Pine Grove School children are successful learners who have the benefit of the latest and best in books, technology, curriculum, and school programs. Approximately 600 students in pre-kindergarten through grade 4 make up the community of learners at Pine Grove Elementary School in Avon, Connecticut. The school opened its doors to students for the first time in 1991, and was built to be an educational facility for the new millennium. The school's dedicated and talented faculty is committed to working cooperatively with parents to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of all its children. Teachers and parents working together have established a school wide motto "Together We Share, Create, Discover and Achieve." All members of the Pine Grove School community have embraced this and one only needs to walk the halls to see it in action.

Pine Grove School is committed to a school strategic plan which is based on and integrates the district mission statement and student achievement goals adopted by Avon Public Schools.  The staff is dedicated to continuous improvement and growth, a hallmark of schools that embrace the importance of teaching and learning.
