My experience at Pike High School has been bumpy, at least at first, because I didn't know many people starting out but after awhile I became acquainted with many of other peers even though the school is huge. I started off in Virtual School at Pike in September of 2015 up till January of 2016. Virtual school was okay, I never experienced online school until then and it was nice and I got to go to school two days out the week to interact with the teachers. My experience at the actual school was way better since that's what I've always had, one-on-one classroom experience. Overall, I enjoyed Pike High School, and I love the students and faculty members at Pike, I'll miss them after I graduate June 1st, I might even visit them before I go off to school in the Fall!
Review Pike High School
My experience at Pike High School was great because not only did I receive a great education and was on honor roll all my four years, but I was active in the school. I was in an organization called NSBE(National Society of Black Engineers) and I was in show choir all of my 4 years. The teachers were great and helped me throughout my years there which I appreciate very much. There is nothing I would change because every school has its flaws and I didn't have to deal with major conflicts while I was there. My high school years could not have been any better! The curriculum prepared me for college and that was a great advantage for me.
My overall experience at Pike High School is that there are a lot of opportunities provided at my school that allow for students to explore their favorite activities and share it with one and other. My school is unique because of it's diverse culture and it's address of the different cultures. My favorite experience, involving the cultures of the school, is the Pike Multicultural Festival. It incorporates a plethora of different information about countries that most people have not heard of. I love the fest! I would choose this school all over again because I feel lucky to go there now and I know even if I chose a different route, I still would be happy there.
