Pikesville District and Curriculum
Pikesville’s K-12 students attend public school in the Baltimore County Public School system. In order to prepare students for college and career readiness, the district focuses on providing rigorous and relevant learning opportunities that bridge the gap between classroom learning and application to real life. By making these connections, students develop a deeper understanding of the value and worth of the knowledge and skills they learn in school. Dedicated teachers deliver curricula that are 21st century driven and focus on integrating technology. The district also focuses on developing students that are communicative, hardworking, and respectful of different peoples.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pikesville District Curriculum
The middle school technology curriculum in Pikesville facilitates student exploration of the development and influence of technologies on the modern world. Students explore various technologies and technology systems, noting their advantages and disadvantages to a number of endeavors, from education to business to communications. Students also examine the design and development processes that are required to develop new technologies. The application of technology to various economic areas is also studied.
The language arts curriculum begins in elementary school where students develop foundational skills required to become effective readers. Students work on phonics and word recognition in order to build the skills necessary to identify and understand the meaning of prefixes, suffixes, and whole words. This includes a study of common Latin suffixes and vowel pronunciation rules that allow children to decode multisyllabic words. These skills allow students to read unfamiliar words accurately. To build fluency, students take part in daily reading exercises.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Reading
Reading is a critical component for the academic and intellectual growth of children. Studies show that children who read often demonstrate much better understanding of vocabulary, syntax, sentence structure, and other elements that make for better readers and writers. Frequent readers also demonstrate improved concentration and self-control. These qualities lend to better performance in school, particularly in reading-heavy subjects like English and social studies. Reading also gives students insight into the world around them. By exploring different worlds – real and fictional – students develop a deeper sense of empathy for others. Kids’ imaginations also benefit from frequent reading. On a biological level, reading helps exercise our brains. Reading requires far more work than watching TV or YouTube, and as a result, existing neural connections are strengthened and additional ones are created.
