No teaching going on at this school! One of her classes all they do is watch criminal minds which my daughter asked to be excused from because of the violent content. They are currently showing the entire school Juno just to fill the last days of the year. Really? Most of her classes they just watch movies. This year she has seen Baby Mama, Avengers, and now Juno. The teachers do not accommodate for 504 or special needs. The vice principle is the only person you can talk to if you have a problem and he is no help. As mentioned in the other review they do the mandatory "cram" sessions to get the high scores. They are not earned by the teachers.

Wonderful school, child has attended for three years, and haven't had any issues with students or facility, except for one... Mr. Glasgow makes facility feel guilty, and is very rude to students. This school needs more principle involvement!

I currently go to Piedmont and love it. I also live in Oklahoma City. But still in the District. To the person that said its being over run by people that live in OKC has a problem. The quality of Piedmont is outstanding. It needs our property taxes. Piedmont shouldnt be strictly for its city limits. In other word. Its great and even if we dont have a piedmont address. We still go here and will stay here. I love piedmont.

The School Board is in need of major changes, for one, they need to keep people who live in Okla. City and don't have a Piedmont address out of the school, they need to go to OKC.schools. Piedmont is being over run by children who should not be going to Piedmont. We are loosing the Quality of our schools because this. It needs to be stoped now.

I graduated Piedmont High School in 1996. I have been in the military now for 8 years and I now have a family and planning to raise them in Piedmont due to the school. I had a great learning experience and had wonderful teacher who when needed could give me one on one help. Even though the school has grown alot since '96 it still has the same comfortable feeling a school schould have. I was a 2rd generation family member who graduated from here and now a 3rd generation in the school at this time.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests End-of-Instruction (OCCT EOI) exams to test students in high school in several subjects. The OCCT EOI is a high school graduation requirement. The OCCT EOI exams are standards-based tests, which means they measure specific skills defined for each subject by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
