My oldest child graduated with honors and tested out of a semester of classes at IU with many ap classes to their credit.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Pike instructors are of the highest caliber that enable and push kids at all economic levels to achieve at their highest level. Additionally, Pike instructors are highly sought after to fulfill open positions in other school systems. As a very large school system, Pike does an outstanding job managing finances and keeping taxes down for the township. Pike will soon be completing it's last school rebuild and that loan will be paid off in a very fast turn-around incurring limited long term debt for the township. Few if any school districts have done that and show a 94% graduation rate in their high school.

Pike is fueled by an administrative team which seeks to keep its political edge, rather than address the serious educational issues that the district faces. Free-thinking and inquiry are stifled and/or redirected to the larger "administrative" perspective in order to maintain Pike's image, which is carefully supported by the district's public relations department. This managed release of information is designed to confuse and assuage parent/guardian and media concerns. The high school and its feeder schools languish in mediocrity, without really addressing the important issues such as poverty, reading readiness, tracking, and true racial and cultural understanding. Accepting the fact that its honors students outperform neighboring IPS and charter schools is not a good enough selling point for this once proud district. The district needs a fresh approach to meet its needs.

Great AP and Honors classes to prepare you for college. Excellent athletic program resulting in famous NBA and NFL players. Highly recommended.



- a parent
Pike High School has great honors and AP classes. The music and sports programs are worthwhile. It is a diverse school with many opportunities. Some alumni have become NBA and NFL players and one stars on Saturday Night Live.

Sad experience at Pike!!! This was the absolute worst choice I could as far as a high school for my child. The Freshman Center administration lacks compassion, this isn't a school, it's a prison and children aren't treated with respect.

A horrible school and administration, especially the shameful special education admin. Do NOT send your child to this school, or any of the Pike elementary or middle schools- if you are looking for a new home, seek another township or suburb where your children and tax dollars don't go towards this substandard education. The special ed admin has a well known poor reputation state-wide with other schools and staff. The incompetent special ed admin WILL impact your child: Children with special needs are given little to no assistance, and this not only affects their education but the entire classroom environment as well. The schools are physically and emotionally unsafe for your child unless placed in a gifted and talented class. Save yourself the fear and heartache for your child and do not send them to this school system.

that school is one of the best school there can be i sent my son to Ben Davis but they did not treat him with the respect he needed just because he is Puertorique o.
