Charting a Course
Since 1916, the Pikeville Independent School System has afforded educational growth opportunities to the young people of Eastern Kentucky. Over 5,000 graduates have gone on to be leaders and active participants in the local community, our state and beyond. From our roots at the downtown school to the elementary on Chloe to the current high school, the system has worked to expand the horizons and provide positive direction to our children. The Foundation seeks to build on this tradition.
