What Makes Our School System Unique?

Creating Diverse Opportunity

Pike County is focused on the success of every student in our district. This means enabling students to follow a range of different paths and not subjecting them to “cookie cutter” curriculums. We pride ourselves on fostering the skillsets of a diverse and multifaceted student body. 

Encouraging Experimentation

We do this by providing specialty courses, curriculums, and experiences that range from computing and technology to farming and mechanics.  Our goal is to ensure that by the time our students graduate, they have a strong understanding of what their skillsets, passions, and goals are.

Enabling Career Success

By encouraging critical thinking and diverse experiences among our students, we enable them to strongly set forth into their adulthood and succeed independently as they enter college, join the workforce, and become contributing members to our society. 

"Life is not a multiple choice test. In the real world, you learn by doing. Our goal at Pike County is to make sure every student gains the experience and skills they need to excel at their chosen career path."
Dr. Michael Duncan MD
Pike County Schools Superintendent

More About Our Mission

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE BEHIND PIKE COUNTY'S EDUCATIONAL STRATEGY?

We want all students to be free to live the life they choose, free from limitations and influence. We believe that true freedom begins in the mind with independent and well-reasoned thought. Our mission is to help each student learn and grow throughout their early lives in order to attain their intellectual independence, which will ultimately enable them to excel as they enter into careers and citizenship.
