There are accepting people at PikeView and all the teachers are very helpful in your education. After attending for three years so far, I can honestly say that I love PikeView. The arts classes are great, and so is the JROTC class. The principal is nice, as are the other staff members. It is truly hard to find a bad apple in the bunch of students and faculty at PV High School.
