I am very pleased with the overview of the school so far. I am a grandparent raising my grandchild, and at open house everything was organized. The principal was even helping out. I feel if I have any problem, they would be willing to help. Very Awesome School!

We moved from Henry county to Pike a couple of years ago. I am a Realtor, and we were looking for a place for our children to have 'roots' and make friendships that would carry throughout their elementary-highschool years. We were wanting a more 'small town feel', with less traffic and more personal relationships. We have been very pleased with Pike Primary and Elementary schools. The teachers have been awesome!!! They have went the extra mile to challenge our children when they needed to be. We love it here.

Pike County Elementary School is as good as it gets. Disgruntled teachers are a problem in all systems includnig Pike County. Have you ever met a teacher that says they have a great job. The measure of a school's sucess is its' kids. The kids at PCES and Pike county schools for that matter, are happy sucessful children encumbered by the bad attitudes of a few vocal teachers who are a problem for this system, just as they would be for any system. Ask the kids they will tell you the truth, ask the parents they will as well, ignore teachers with agendas, fortunatly the Pike County Central Office Administration now has the fortitude to ignore these unprofessional professionals, and like bad students they are packing them off to the alternative school. Pike County Schools are the best, and they getting better.

This used to be a great school, but it is in a downward spiral. PCES is known for quality teachers who go above and beyond. However, due to a new administration (at the central office)teacher morale is at an all-time low, and it's getting worse! Teachers are expected to perform at their optimal level while they are badgered and degraded, often in front of their students. Teachers are also expected to provide elemetary age students the materials they need while at the same time being told they can't have more paper or ink because there's no money? These same teachers must drive by a newly restored 'Field-house Mahal', complete with thousands worth of 'astro-turf' daily. The teachers (SYSTEMWIDE)are upset about the drastic swing from Children-Come-First to Football-Comes-First, but anyone who voices concerns risks retaliation. PLEASE help save system before it's too late! Call the board or state!
