Kendriya Vidyalaya Picket came in to existence on 1st July 1964 when Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan took over the Air force School in Picket. The students and teachers of the feeding school were absorbed into KVS. The school made a humble beginning with about 50 students in classes VI to IX and ten teachers. There was no primary wing. Some of the teachers who helped in the grooming of the Vidyalaya in the initial stages are Mrs. Padmaja, Mr. Ashwath Narayana, Mr. ALN Rao, Mrs. Premlata Reddy and Mrs. Pramila Venugopal. There were a lot of problems in the initial stages as the 1st Principal Mr. Shanker struggled for the Vidyalaya. A little later, the students of a nearby Zilla Parishad school were absorbed in to KV Picket. Things began to look up from July 65 when Mr. Sukumaran took over as the Principal. Under his able guidance the school grew in strength, and quality and came to be known as one of the prestigious schools of Secunderabad. He introduced the Primary wing and started the Tarband branch in 1965. KV Picket got its own building in February 1969 which exists as the old block. The school started working in shifts in the initial stages, with the primary in the mornings and classes VI to XI in the afternoons. As per the practice in those days, children were diversified in to science and humanities streams at class IX itself.
