Welcome from the Head of School
Welcome to Pike. Pike is a place of possibility. No matter the future facing us, we believe in our students’ ability to lead us through it. We are a community where we teach and learn with curiosity, intention, and hope. Now and always, we believe in the individual promise of our students and the strength of our community.
Since our founding in 1926, Pike continues to be a true learning community where every child is known, understood, and developed. Our founder, Cynthia Pike, began Pike with six students in her home - passionate, committed, and optimistic about her young charges. Today, we continue to embody her ethos in our small classes where teaching is designed and adapted based on students’ specific needs; where there is a network of teachers, advisors, and coaches present to support and stretch each child; where there are endless opportunities for children to make new friends and discover new interests.
While we have entered a new normal and school as we know it has shifted, Pike has always adapted to keep our students safe, promote their emotional wellbeing, and prepare them for the future which lies ahead. We have always committed to nourishing a diverse and inclusive community where every child has a voice and feels safe. We are expertly prepared for this moment, this new normal, and we will continue to thrive. We are all in this together, and together we will rise. I invite you to learn more about Pike, our community, and how we plan to keep your child safe and challenged.
Joy, curiosity, and engagement are still possible. Discover more about Pike.
