Pike and Wayne County School Districts

 “All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth”

 So said Aristotle more than 2,300 years ago!

 Our local public school systems are entrusted with the educational development of the children and youth of our communities.  The future welfare of Pike and Wayne Counties, of Pennsylvania, and of our nation depends in the largest measure upon the quality of education we provide in public schools.  It is the responsibility of each and every parent to be well informed about our educational process – as it is the greatest instrument for the preservation and perpetuation of our American way of life.
