The Pike Road Way

The strength of Pike Road Schools is grounded in our sincere desire to create a culture of intellectual curiosity. We are fearless about doing what is best for our students. We refer to how we do things as “The Pike Road Way.”


Our Mission: To create a culture of intellectual curiosity where all students have ownership over their learning and are inspired to think, innovate, and create.

Our Vision: Our students are lifelong learners who use their knowledge, skills, and influence to make the world a better place.

Our Beliefs:

We believe intellectual growth occurs when learners are genuinely engaged in their learning.

We believe students are more engaged when they are solving real problems for a real audience.

We believe meaningful learning can occur any time and at any location.

We believe learners will do challenging work when failure is embraced as a valuable part of the learning process and they feel safe and valued.

We believe community members are valuable partners and must be involved in their schools.

We believe all members of the school community should treat each other like family.

We believe that every member of the school community contributes to student learning and should be a continuous learner.

We believe teachers are designers, facilitators, navigators, mentors, encouragers, and leaders who continuously work on improving the learning experiences designed for students and are highly respected experts who have a global impact on teaching and learning.

We believe parents are valuable partners and members of the school community.

We believe the superintendent and principals are lead learners and are highly respected experts who have a global impact on teaching and learning.

We believe the superintendent and school board function as a team, advocate for students, create capacity and build community.
