What Makes Our School System Unique?
Creating Diverse Opportunity
Pike County is focused on the success of every student in our district. This means enabling students to follow a range of different paths and not subjecting them to “cookie cutter” curriculums. We pride ourselves on fostering the skillsets of a diverse and multifaceted student body.
We do this by providing specialty courses, curriculums, and experiences that range from computing and technology to farming and mechanics. Our goal is to ensure that by the time our students graduate, they have a strong understanding of what their skillsets, passions, and goals are.
Enabling Career Success
By encouraging critical thinking and diverse experiences among our students, we enable them to strongly set forth into their adulthood and succeed independently as they enter college, join the workforce, and become contributing members to our society.
