I currently attend The Pike School. I absolutely adore the vigorous curriculum that takes you and brings you to places where you can succeed. Lots of students go off to pristine private schools including Phillips Academy and Middlesex School. I really enjoy what the teachers have to offer although it is a tough school in terms of work load and a lot of peer pressure. The eighth graders are messed up and some of them are really screwed up which is a result of how they shelter you at Pike. The faculty and students are really friendly and it is not a school known for any types of bullying. The teachers are trained to fit the needs of individual students and characters within the classroom environment. I recommend you apply if you're interested in an academic, athletic, fun and safe school! I love it here. The academic load can sometimes become difficult and stressful but it is preparing you for high school. Pike has grades pre-k to 9th grade and is a preparatory day school. I hope I could help you in a slight way whether you're a student or parent. In addition the teachers who fit the curriculum to your needs and teach you are eager for you to succeed. Thanks again!

I go to Pike and I like it! Classes are only 40 mins so you dont get bored its small so it s a tight community. maybe a little too much hw and pressure but its fun!

i go to pike (not the pike) and its a good school because of the tight community, but too sheltered from bad stuff (at least in grades 6-9), where the students are treated like small children...

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
