I went to rankin, so I'm thinking it's better, but having never set foot into pinewood, and haven't been in rankin in 20 some years, I don't actually know. When we bought our house,(5 years ago)the realtor said it was in rankins district, however come to find out, we are in pinewoods district.

So, what are the pros and cons for these schools?

Need to know if I need to sell and buy elsewhere or just try to get permission to go out of school line district.

Thanks.

Both are the same I have two kids one kid went to Rankin the other to Pinewood. They're not that different. Not worth selling your house to go to one or the other school.I personally like Pinewood alot easier getting in and out taking and picking up from school

Ida Rankin students are more intelligent on average than Pinewood students.Numbers do not lie.Pinewood has a history of kids that have failed in life.This needs to change.It's like the have's and the have not.Ida Rankin has,while Pinewood has not.Pinewood was built,and structured for poor minority kids back in the day when it was okay to do that.
