Powerful peer-to-peer learning
Students learn from students. In fact, we believe it’s the second-biggest factor (after exceptional teachers) for student success. That’s why Pike focuses on filling our classrooms with talented, multi-faceted children with strong learning profiles. And meeting the needs of those outstanding students whose families have demonstrated need.
In short, Pike classrooms don’t happen by accident. And they don’t happen without investment. Your gift to financial aid enrolls the strongest possible classrooms, and that’s a win-win for every student. Period.
I learned so much from my classmates. It seemed so natural at Pike, I don’t think I thought about it. But in secondary school, I felt really prepared because I understood how I learned, and I was tuned into how others learned. That awareness helped me to collaborate in the classroom and to navigate social situations outside of the classroom. Alexandra F. '12
