    I'm a grandparent with 2 grandchildren who transferred to North Pike from Otken and North Pike wins hands down. There is no comparison. Academically this school in reading and math is far more advanced than Otken. I give it 5 stars!!!

    I cannot praise this school enough. I have a son who started Kindergarten there and is now going to the 3rd grade. We went to orientation yesterday. You would expect this to be a very chaotic time. It was just the opposite. I was so impressed that everyone was smiling and helping one another. I especially love the fact that I actually attended North Pike with several of the teachers. My daughter was only able to attend 1 full year. We were living out of district. The only reason we moved to our current location is so our children could attend North Pike. When my daughter passed away the support and compassion from this community was overwhelming. The school instantly became my 2nd family. I thank God everyday to have such wonderful devoted people in our lives. The teachers want to ensure the greatest learning experience for student and parent.

    Great school I went to North Pike kindergarten through my senior year. I now have 1 child in 4th grade and another is about start at North Pike. What I remember most is the attentiveness and compasion shown to each child. Still today that seems to be the case with my 4th grader and her teachers. Please visit our school system and see how your children can benefit from attenting North Pike.

    I think that parent involvment could improve. After all I am a parent with children at this school and I often feel like I am being pressured into performing certain duties because other parents won't. I know there are those who can't. But there are plenty who 'won't'. I know members of the PTA who never get notification of meetings and I don't see why. I love the school; my husband graduated from here. My children have excelled here. I just think that parents could do a lot more. Especially those who do not work and have no younger children at home. I have a small child at home and still manage to do something. Thanks for the opportunity to make my voice heard.

    Excellent school. My child loves it at this school. I enjoy her going to a school that I once attended. I know 80% of the teachers and think they are wonderful. I could not ask for a better school to send a child for an education. Emphasis is placed on ACADEMICs. Of course there are sports and value is placed on that is well. However the MOST IMPORTANT thing for this school is the education of the children. After all this is their first step. If the first steps are never learned they will never learn to walk. Fabulous teachers. Fabulous Principal. Overall the school is wonderful. Great people to work with my child. Would recommend to anybody in the area.
