My experience at Pike High School was great because not only did I receive a great education and was on honor roll all my four years, but I was active in the school. I was in an organization called NSBE(National Society of Black Engineers) and I was in show choir all of my 4 years. The teachers were great and helped me throughout my years there which I appreciate very much. There is nothing I would change because every school has its flaws and I didn't have to deal with major conflicts while I was there. My high school years could not have been any better! The curriculum prepared me for college and that was a great advantage for me.

My overall experience at Pike High School is that there are a lot of opportunities provided at my school that allow for students to explore their favorite activities and share it with one and other. My school is unique because of it's diverse culture and it's address of the different cultures. My favorite experience, involving the cultures of the school, is the Pike Multicultural Festival. It incorporates a plethora of different information about countries that most people have not heard of. I love the fest! I would choose this school all over again because I feel lucky to go there now and I know even if I chose a different route, I still would be happy there.

At Pike High School, some teachers take weeks to grade tests, quizzes, and homework. Most teachers try their best at using different teaching styles, some that could help students who learn differently. Our teachers are very respectful, they treat students how they wish to be treated. There are many teachers who are the head of clubs at my school, there are hundreds of clubs for everyone! Teachers volunteer to be the leaders of these clubs. Very few teachers at Pike have horrible communication skills, for example if they feel a student is struggling and won't go and communicate with the student to see what's wrong and what they're struggling in.
