I attended Piedmont over 6 years ago and am immensely pround to be a pirate! I now live in London, England were I attend drama school and feel very fortunate to have attended such an open school were the teachers care about all their students. My time at Piedmont was one of the best in my life and I hope the school continues to do good work.
Piedmont Open IB is among the most in-demand schools in Mecklenburg County, with long waiting lists yearly. Some reasons why: It's small (800 students; others in the county are 1,200-1,700). The administration is hands-on and very experienced. Award-winning administrators and teachers (several past local Teachers of Year and/or National Educators of Year award winners) love working there. My student 10 others I can think of in her grade alone have thrived in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program, scoring very well on state & nat'l tests without having to focus on hours of daily homework. This school excels at identifying a child's learning style and training them how to take charge and learn to the best of their particular style in high school and college. A state-of-the-art renovation of the historic school campus opens in 2004-2005.
This school has high expectations for the students and it shows. There is an opportunity for all students to work hard and be successful. I have been very pleased with the progress of my child in the program (IB). She works to do her best and it shows. The opportunity to perform is given to all of the students. I don't know about other students in regular classes. But the IB program has been a good thing for those who are capable of achieving more success with a more stringent cirriculum. I see better things in the upcoming years for my child. Kudos! to PMS
