    I move to the piper area about 3 years ago when my boys were in the 1st & 3rd grade and I really felt like my kids got the best attention. The teachers really care about the students which makes a difference in how the students respond to the school work. We recently had to move due to relocation of a job but my family really miss the atmosphere and the love that we got from Piper. Go Pirates!
