Pike County Public Schools Reviews

I like the positive atmosphere and the loving, open arms of the teachers and staff. I first moved to the pike county school district when I was an incoming freshman. I was very weary about moving and not knowing anyone there. I was also scared because it was a new environment I was not comfortable with. I was welcomed in with open arms. I felt at home after a few days of being at my school. The staff truly works so hard to make all the students feel welcome and wanted.

Pike county schools are very small, but that makes them very homey. My school and the people that go there have grown so near to my heart throughout my time in it. The only problem I have is some teachers could not care less when it comes to their teaching, but you experience that at any school. Overall, my experience at my high school has been positive
Overall not a terrible school system, but there is much to improve on. Maybe put administrators need to focus on putting money into education and not one of our many failing sports teams. Pike County schools also needs to focus on gettin their students more "college ready" than they already are.
