Pikesville High is a... wild place I guess? Sure there's the occasional fight and drama that goes on, a few of the teachers kinda suck, and a couple of students have problems and really shouldn't have bothered to attend school in the first place; but Pikesville High is that sort of place that feels nice to go to for the lack of better words, assuming you're a perfectly average student and willing to have an open mind to lots of things. There some great teachers, the school has access to some pretty extensive resources (looking at you IMP and PLTW), and I wouldn't trade this school for any other school.

Overall, it really depends on your person and what's on your interests, but its a fun place anyway.

Pikesville High is a very diverse schools, for the most part, teachers are patient with students and determined to understand the matter. The difficulty of classes ranges from too easy (honor classes), to too hard and demanding (Ap classes). Most students who thrive there are those willing to put the work in outside the classroom. Pikesville , in my opinion, should do a better job when it comes to tolerating the behavior of Kids who do not abide by the rules.
I love the teachers and atmosphere. Everyone comes excited to learn and we always learn very interesting and timely information. The administration is amazing and knows how to control a school!
