Pine Wood Elementary School
The Pine Wood Elementary building was first opened in September of 1952. It housed grades eight through twelve and Jack Gormley was principal. In 1954 the seventh grade was added, however, in 1960 it was returned to the downtown Third Street school. In 1963 DeRidder Junior High was completed and eight grade was moved, leaving only grades nine through twelve.
A new DeRidder High School facility was completed in 1972, leaving the building available for DeRidder's fourth and fifth grades.
The school was named "Pine Wood Elementary School" a result of a faculty contest.
