    Health & Safety: At Pike there are several security guards at school. They are all armed I believe. There are security cameras just about everywhere, except the bathrooms. When something dangerous is going on or there is a drill, all students and staff know about it. There will be an announcement on the intercom. At Pike during school hours just anybody is not allowed in school. There has to be an ID present to enter the school.

    Food: At Pike the food accommodations are could but could be better. I feel like we should have more options for food. There aren't that many healthy options at school. The only healthy thing you can get there is a sub or salad. The cafeteria is nice. There is new seats and tables that are more comfortable.
