Story of our School

Pineview Public School is a bustling rural school surrounded by pine trees and located in Athens, Ontario (population of approximately 3,100 people).  Our current school was built in 1968.  Prior to the construction of the new school, area students attended Farmersville School which was built in 1859. Farmersville, the town, was renamed to Athens in 1888 in honour of Athens, Greece, because it was an educational centre with grammar school, a model school for teacher training, and a high school
