Pike Road Military Families

The Pike Road School district values the many families that live in our community, especially those who have ties to the military. Approximately 9% of the student body has military ties, so the Pike Road Schools understand that military youth go through unique circumstances and situations. The PRS Military webpage provides helpful resources, as well as how to contact their military liaison staff who are designated to assist military families. Visit the PRS website for more information!
