As a past student of Pike, I was more prepared than most students in college. Pike taught me the exact skills needed to succeed in college and in the real world. What aggravated me more than anything was the misinformed and ignorant views people have towards Pike. It was viewed as "ghetto" but the massive ranges in diversity, both cultural and socioeconomic, are outstanding. I would recommend Pike to any parent who wants their child to avoid cliques, and bullying from private schools because everyone is so unique at Pike that you'll be accepted into a group somewhere. The fact that Pike got a 3/10 on this website is a travesty and I hope that parents who are looking at Pike don't take those numbers into account and look at the wonderful reviews from parents and students because Pike is really worth it and, in my book, is a 10/10.
