Pikesville High is slowly becoming the school it is capable of being. With the new facilities, new principal, and devices for each student, the school has seen drastic improvements since my freshman year. One thing I would like to see changed is administration's communication with students. Often times, students seek help from administration when addressing an issue but are ignored until parents get involved.

Teachers and nice and great, others are horrible. Great events, but slight racism between the jewish and black people. The jewish people only want to be with those of their kind. Otherwise, it’s a great school and they offer nice courses and get you ready for college. Best public school in Baltimore County
I like that Pikesville High School had a renovation. The school is new and has good working AC's. Pikesville has a good environment and have numerous electives and clubs/sports that students can choose from. Pikesvilles' only problem in my eyes is how the teachers don't get as much control over their respective courses as they should. The administration needs to loosen up and let them teach the class based on the students and how they learn instead of forcing Avid's way of learning.
