i am a 6th grade student and Piedmont is truly a great school. its clean, the teachers are simply wonderful, and the curriculum provides a challenge for the students, but not too much of one. the principal really gets involved with the students, unlike other schools. there's plenty to do at this school, including clubs, talent shows, there's a lot of field trips and you have "electives" that you can pick for yourself, not by teachers. bullying isn't much of a problem here, and neither is crimes or excessively bad things such as drugs or alcohol use. i highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for an above average school.
