Making learning the most natural thing in the world.
It originates, of course, with our teachers, who help students understand they are active participants in the learning process. It's not something that happens to them, it's something they engage in with others.

The Pike School is filled with fabulous teachers. The kind who teach children the most important lesson of all: To believe in themselves. Read more about our faculty.

Our Promise: We will surround your child with positive energy.
At Pike School, we believe every child has unlimited potential. That's why we provide unlimited possibilities – for thinking, creating, competing and unleashing curiosity.

Positive energy. It's in the air. Along the hallways. Throughout every classroom. And on every child's face. Because of it, our students believe they can do anything. That's the power of the positive energy that flows through the Pike School. See for yourself.

Positive energy creates endless possibilities.
And a Pike education guarantees students are prepared to take advantage of every one.

By the time they graduate, our students are master learners. They know how to manage their time, build meaningful relationships with adults, and advocate for themselves. They also know what it means to make a positive impact in the world. Read about our alumni.

Positive energy in action.
It starts with cultivating an intense excitement around learning. The Lower School curriculum is rooted in activities that develop essential skills while fostering confidence and creativity, from puppets and puzzles in Pre-K language arts class to reenacting the Ellis Island experience in second-grade social studies.

The Ellis Island simulation is a big day for our second graders, who play the roles of actual immigrants who came to America through Ellis Island. Watch video.

It's okay to be invested.
In fact, it's a cornerstone of the Pike culture. A positively infectious enthusiasm for the topic at hand is something that students and faculty share.

In fifth grade, technology takes center stage. Students put on their engineering hats to design and build "taskbots" that are able to navigate an obstacle-filled landscape. Watch video.
