Principal's Message

Dear Students & Parents,


I am as excited to start my third year as the principal of Pikesville Middle School as I was for my first year!  It is evident to many across Baltimore County that Pikesville is a community with enormous pride and as the principal, it is my goal to nurture that spirit and pride alive every day.  We made significant progress over the past two school years; however, we must continue our work to improve academic outcomes for ALL students.  We will continue with our motto, “WE ARE PIKESVILLE”!  We have become united under the umbrella “WE ARE PIKESVILLE” because all stakeholders in our community are invested in our success.  We have purposefully evolved the culture in our school to be a school where children feel safe and are eager to learn.  The most powerful method for our school to move to new heights is through the home-school partnership.


For our students to be globally competitive, we will continue to prepare students for the 21st century workplace that includes the preparation for jobs that have yet to be created.  To be successful, students will need to be able to think creatively, critically, intuitively, solve real world problems, communicate effectively (verbal & written forms), work in teams, use technology to accelerate learning outcomes, and develop healthy, ethical life-style habits.  Our Python Pride motto states that students are Prepared, Respectful, Inclusive, Diverse, and Engaged! I encourage you to remind your child daily that embracing the Python Pride motto will ensure they are a successful student at Pikesville Middle School.


The connection between home and school is critical.  When staff and parents work together, student educational experiences are enhanced.  Student academic success and personal responsibility at Pikesville Middle School are dependent on a cooperative triangle comprised of student-teacher-parent/guardian.  Through a close and shared partnership with all stakeholders associated with Pikesville Middle School, I am confident our school will continue to be a successful place for our students to learn and grow.  I invite you to call or e-mail in order to share your ideas relating to how we can all work together to ensure Pikesville Middle School is the best of all places to attend school. Please follow us on Twitter @PikesvilleM.


I look forward to a productive and memorable school year for everyone!


Yours in Educational Excellence,


Kalisha T. Miller, Principal
