Pike County is a Georgia Public School System located 60 miles south of Atlanta, serving 3,400 students in Pre-kindergarten through Grade 12. Developing Creative Problem Solvers ready for college and career through a focus on critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration, is our mission. We believe success in the 21st century depends less on what you know, and more on what you can do.
We believe that...
- All students can learn and grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
- All students benefit from rigorous learning environment characterized by the transfer of knowledge and skills to novel experiences over standardized test preparation and rote skill acquisition.
- Engaging and meaningful learning promotes student agency, voice, and choice.
- Learning must be made visible.
Why do we do what we do?
Because Freedom lives in Choice and Opportunities.
We want all students to be free to live the life they choose, free from limitations and influence. Freedom begins in the mind with independent and well-reasoned thought.
To Develop Creative Problem-solvers ready for college, career, and citizenship.
