    Piedmont Elementary School is a great school - but some of the teachers needs to move on. Some of them yell at the students and belittle them. If a teacher does not love kids they need to go somewhere else. Also the teachers say they want parent involvement - and when parents send notes and ask questions the teachers say they feel 'harrassed' by the parents. These teachers need to move on. The administrtion is doing a very good job - and 90% of the teachers are the best anywhere.

    Piedmont Elementary School is a fantastic school. The teachers deeply care for their students and go the extra mile to make sure they achieve on their level.If there were more parent involvement the school would excel even more. The school has several new programs that is increasing learning of each child at a even faster rate. Keep up the good work teachers!

    I think Piedmont Elementary is an excellent school for a small school. Even with a lack of funds we do a lot for our students that other schools only dream about. We make it happen because we care about our students. We are a T.E.A.M. - Together Everyone Achieves more!
