    Mission Statement

    Developing Creative Problem-solvers Ready for College and Careers.

     

    Vision

    Creating Schools that Students Love.

     

     Operating Principles

    • Given appropriate instruction, time, and resources, all children can demonstrate high levels of critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration.
    • The instructional climate must intentionally promote the development of students' personal responsibility (soft skills, executive functioning, and metacognition) in a caring and supportive environment.
    • Standardized test scores are but one measure of a student's educational progress; more important is what students can do with the knowledge and skills they acquire.
    • Today's students are digital natives, so technology must be ubiquitous in our schools.
    • All students deserve a rigorous learning environment
  • Portrait of a Graduate Portrait of a Graduate

    Pike County's Portrait of a Graduate is an interactive infograph that embodies out district's educational strategy. It includes six intertwined goals that we understand make for well-rounded students, ready for college and their careers.
