Greenland Pines Elementary School:

When you enroll your child in Greenland Pines Elementary, he or she doesn’t just join a school. Your family becomes part of a very special community. As the gold standard for elementary education in Mandarin for decades, Greenland Pines is a community where parents and educators work hand in hand to teach and nurture so that every child can achieve great things.

What Parents Think

We are proudly a public neighborhood school with outstanding instructional resources. This allows us to focus on the student’s academic potential, not the student’s profit potential. That means every student benefits from a tailored learning experience, and the bond between teachers and students feels like family.

What Your Children Will Learn

At Greenland Pines, we focus not just on building better students, but developing young minds with character, culture, and a love of learning. The best proof of our success is seeing how many Greenland Pines students from decades past now send their own children here. So many of our former students are enjoying success right here in Mandarin. Others are making us proud around the world. Countless doctors, CEOs, judges, military officers, entrepreneurs, and even current Duval County school teachers got their start at the gem of Mandarin education, Greenland Pines.

Why We're Unique

The quality of our instruction surpasses that of any private school. Our teachers, many with master’s and doctorate degrees, think beyond the standards. Teachers have the freedom to individualize instruction to make learning a joy for all of our students. That is why we reach beyond the standards.
