Upper School

Grades 6-9

Balancing core capabilities with self-directed learning.

In Upper School, every effort is made to balance academic rigor with creative exploration. What makes a Pike education unlike any other is the depth and breadth of those academic and creative opportunities. From studying Latin and firing up the pottery kiln, to arranging an original piece of music, the Upper School experience is about balancing core capabilities with self-directed learning. See Upper School sample schedule.
