I can say that I cannot think of a better place to send my children. They have been challenged academically at each level of their education. They have been challenged to do their best and be a team player for the teams and clubs they have been a part of. They have been encouraged to be good leaders and role models for the other students . I am extremely happy with the educational choice I made for them, and with the safe, secure environment they are in.

Well Bullying was an issue. Good luck trying to get through to the staff. Remember all the children are dollar signs so if your child is bullied they don't care. They don't want to upset the parents and tell them their kids are spoiled brats.

During a technology fundraiser they offered for the parents to pay for "student of the month" awards and several other awards. I couldn't believe they would think this is ok. Mom & Dad can just pay for the awards you don't earn.

I had a horrible experience with this school. They don't really have standards for anything. The academics can be at whatever level they feel nessasary. They don't respect the parents opinions and never give a plan of action for any wrongdoing. They have the they are always right attitude. Bullying was an issue that they treated as a nonissue. The academic side was very very lacks. Put it to you this way, I placed my son in a public school and he was so far behind they almost put him back a grade level. They make you sign up for the next school year super early too. So things can happen and you are stuck paying for the next school year. DON'T sign the promissory note, unless you are certain nothing will happen in the future that you don't agree with. They have these promissory notes instead of contracts because they are not obligated to perform in any way and they will still get paid by law. A contract is an obligation to preform things for the money you pay with some expectations of the business. They must not beleive in their own ability to teach. Please learn from my lesson, wasted two years tuition money on one school year, because I signed up for the next school year before all our issues came to light.

Great little small town private school. Excellent value (tuition has remained reasonable for middle income families; predominately made up of families who want their children to become successful adults and not fall prey to economically depressed public school systems in the area with low percentages of college bound graduates). Quality education. Focus over the last few years has been quality of education, advancement of technology and improvement of facilities. Would recommend this school to anyone. Great balance of sports / education / fine arts.

We are happy with this school overall. This is our first year and we are very excited to see all the new things that the new headmaster has implemented and is planning to implement. The technology has previously fallen behind, but is soon to excel! So far we have no complaints! Good environment and good families. I feel that my children have really been challenged. We are looking forward to the next several years here.

My son is a middle school student at Piedmont. He has a great group of friends and is involved in a number of extracurricular activities. Academically, he is challenged to do his best every day. The teachers work hard at getting the kids ready for the next level - high school and beyond. I am pleased with the students, activities, and academics at Piedmont.

We have been Piedmont parents for several years with several children attending right now. Overall it is a great school with reat teachers and advanced studies for the small children to grow. However, some severe issues cause the school not to move forward as a whole. The 'Board' is made up of parents with a 'Good Ole' Boy' mentality. This keeps the school from progressing forward. Also, the 'Grandparents Club' is a 'Retired Good Ole' Boy' system. Hopefully, with time, the country mentality can retire and the school can move forward.

Teacher quality is excellent, Administration leadership is well above average and Piedmont is a school that highly encourages parent involvement. Both my children are Piedmont graduates. I sent them there for the safety, discipline and education emphasis. My son went on to graduate from GA Tech with an electrical engineering degree. We are grateful that we weto re able to give him the edge he needed be successful by sending him to Piedmont.

my son left Piedmont Academy in 2002 went on to Young Harris then on to Georgia Southern to complete his education in his chosen field. He was a baseball player and his coach took him to a level that helped him develop the skills in working with people he uses today. We would do it all over again. Great people,proud to be part of the Piedmont family.

Piedmont is structured around the average child, the more advanced students have to fall back and the remedial kids are left behind. The environment is great but it cannot make up for the lack of academic variety needed to fulfill all kids. It is really strong in the sport department, but there again, weak in the arts area. Therefore, if your child excels in areas non sport related, he or she will not be able to receive the structured curriculum that they need as an individual

I am a former student of Piedmont Academy and I am now a parent of 2 children. I attended this school from K-12 and so did my 2 siblings. I feel that because of the high quality of education that Piedmont offers, I was well prepared for college and success! My husband and I are in no way rich, but no matter the cost we will be sending our children to Piedmont Academy. We wouldn't consider any other education.

This is a great school for kids who need to be challenged and want to make something out of their life. Teachers are there to teach, not just to make money and students are able to be in a close-knit environment where they can concentrate on school and education as their main focus.
