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.
Developing Creative Problem-solvers Ready for College and Careers.
Creating Schools that Students Love.
- 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
