    I am a former Student also with family who now attend. I think the school system has improved dramatically over the years. The growth has been phenomenal. I have seen some former classmates take on roles in the school systems and are exceptional leaders. Being from out of town now and seeing what it's like for kids to grow up in larger systems I see now that I would rather my child attend Piedmont that any school in the area because of the closeness of the town and it's dedication to giving a proper education.

    I graduated from piedmont high school. I loved the school at that time. I have children that attend the school now and I'm not real pleased with it. I think we need home folks in the system teaching and coaching our kids.
