Pike students are good sports! Ninety percent of Upper School students participate in at least one interscholastic team sports. Middle School students may participate in a 6-week ski program. All students, Pre-k through Grade 9, take physical education classes that build confidence and instill a lifetime love of fitness.
It starts with cultivating an intense excitement around learning. Pike's Lower School curriculum is rooted in activities that develop essential skills while fostering confidence and creativity. Students are active participants in the learning process: it's not something that happens to them, it's something they engage in with others. These are the years to learn to love learning!
In Upper School, every effort is made to balance academic rigor with creative exploration. Through the elective program, students have the opportunity to apply classroom learning to topics of their own choosing. Upper School students also participate in our 1-to-1 iPad program to enhance collaboration, research, and learning.
Respect for the natural world is a running theme at Pike. Students learn to think like scientists by making predictions, recording observations, and drawing conclusions. Pike is a also a leader in environmental awareness and sustainable practices, from its energy-saving infrastructure to its recycling and composting initiatives to its 1.5-mile nature trail that loops Pike's wooded campus.
Pike students take art, drama, and music just as seriously as science, English, and math. All students, Pre-k through Grade 9, take visual arts and music classes; students Grade 6-9 also take drama. Our modern facilities include a professional theater, dedicated ceramics studio, and a fully-equipped photo darkroom.
Physical Education at Pike begins in Pre-K, developing movement, balance, and spatial awareness, while our oldest students focus on lifetime fitness skills, traditional sports, and an outdoor challenge course.

Surround a child with support, encouragement, and inspiration, and the sky is the limit! That’s the power of a truly positive education. Positive energy fuels our campus, and it ensures that our students are happy, curious, and confident kids. At Pike, our students do more than just acquire skill sets; they develop a deep sense of self-belief and gain the confidence to advocate for themselves and others. And by the time they graduate, they’re in the habit of being thoughtful and thorough in everything they do!
