Information Session: Pike School

12:00 pm

The Pike School proudly offers a unique twelve-month site-based graduate program that leads to Massachusetts Initial Licensure and a M.Ed. in Elementary Education from Lesley University. This well regarded program is designed for individuals who love working with children and want to apply theory with practice on a daily basis. Unlike more traditional teacher training programs, Pikes six interns participate in classrooms within two months of beginning their graduate coursework. This design allows them to experience school life for the entire school year as opposed to traditional 12-week placements. Interns complete two different grade placements and are mentored by two master level teachers and a site based director while simultaneously completing their graduate coursework. Pike offers substantial financial aid as well as two $10,000 grants. All candidates must have completed a bachelor's degree program. The Pike School is an independent, coeducational day school located in Andover, Massachusetts, with over 435 students in grades Pre-K through 9. Handshake Event Page
