We are looking forward to another wonderful year at Piedmont Elementary School. My daughter had an excellent teacher last year and has been looking forward to the new school year all summer. We love our new principal Mrs. VonTungeln; she has been a great addition to Piedmont Elementary School and our district as a whole. As a parent, I noticed amazing and significant changes in the learning environment among students and staff in her first year here. We are happy to be in the Wildcat Family!!

My son has Dyslexia too and Piedmont was more than happy to float him vs. educate. Happy to offer Special Ed. with an unqualified teacher. Superintendent is very smooth and has no problem lying to your face and breaking the law. Principles fall in line and teachers won't dare say anything. Special Ed Director good at talking in circles. For the school it is still business as usual, still doing the same things to not help kids as 30yrs. ago. Don't trust test scores, they hold kids back that don't test well regardless of daily grades or quit testing in the area of difficulty all together as with my son. If you are going to be at this school and you do suspect or have a child with needs, Mary Sweetdarter out of Edmond does a great job of testing and Brad Clark is the best attorney I've seen and I've seen them all. The school will use a Psychometrist to test and she is sweet but can't tell you what the scores mean. This is to the schools advantage, if they don't name it, they aren't responsible for it. The school has had complaints filed against it numerous times but very good at paying to make things go away.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science and writing. The OCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
