From Principal Reid's Desk

Greetings Pikesville High Family,

We hope you had a scintillating summer. Our dynamic adventure together is on the horizon!

Our true-to-life vision remains:

Pikesville High, the heartbeat of our culturally-diverse community, is where PRIDE in our work, and HONOR for ourselves and others, combine to ensure SUCCESS in cultivating our globally-competitive students.

As we eagerly enter the 2018-2019 school season, know that we will continue to set the standard for high-quality, engaging, appropriately challenging, and thoughtful instruction that effectively meets the needs of our wide array of students!

In this first Back-to-School issue of the Panther Post, you will find important links with information for your child to start the school year. Please take time to click through the links below. At the end of September, we will publish another issue with more information on school classes and activities.
