Best High School for Sports in Indiana sportstalk.com

"Every level of sports has made great strides over the years, but perhaps no level has made a bigger jump than high school sports.

The United States has over 37,000 high schools, and broadcast access to games and events for some high schools rivals that of collegiate programs. Just think: Forty years ago, the NBA Finals were aired on tape delay. Now, you can stream a live junior varsity archery contest between high school teams.

With this increased exposure to high school sports, a bigger spotlight has been placed on athletic programs which are a cut above the rest. Some schools have dominant teams in many different sports. Others specialize in just one or two sports.

We have compiled a list of the top high school sports programs by state, plus Washington, D.C. The sports they specialize in include everything from football to swimming to rugby to crew. The criteria emphasized state and national championships above all else, but it also took into account all-time wins, record streaks and collegiate/Olympic/professional athletes produced."

E-Cards for Pike Students PIKE ECARD

Extend the shelves beyond school walls with electronic library cards.  A partnership with Pike and our public libraries allows our students to receive an electronic card (E-Card) to access millions of digital resources from the Indianapolis Public Library. Both public and school libraries are community centers at heart, with the same goal: to provide a safe, welcoming environment for all patrons and access to information in a variety of formats. Research shows that when students can get books more easily, they spend more time reading. When they spend more time reading, research shows they read and write better.  All Pike students will receive an electronic card (E-Card)  to access digital resources. However, if you do not want an electronic card for your student, please decline by completing the opt-out form at this link.
