My three Caucasian children have had an excellent experience at Pike High School. The teachers are phenomenal, there are a plethora of options for extracurricular activities, the curriculum is advanced with many classes that offer college credits., and several clubs available give something everyone can find a place to belong. The diversity in the student body is one of the things my children love best about this school as well as how the teachers care about and challenge them academically. We have had exceptional experiences in both sports and performing arts. I highly recommend this school.
