Piedmont High School for me over the years has shown positives and negatives about the school. To start, Piedmont High School academically is very strong, this school really takes pride in giving kids the knowledge to get better. But I have seen very poor motivation in the teaching staff. There have been many times at Piedmont where my teachers genuinely had no care or will to teach or help their students, they simply just follow there curriculum. I've had the first-hand experience in seeing teachers not have the motivation to come and help any student if they are struggling, they usually blame the student for not coming to them. No, you as a teacher shouldn't always put the student in the wrong, yes the student should come to the teacher if they are need of help, but not all students are the same and some might be dealing with problems that might dissuade them or make them nervous to talk to the teacher. I harp on this because it is the only annoyance I've had with this school.

I have had a very good experience with piedmont high school. They have great teachers and staff, along with the facilities needed for learning. They always have you prepared for exams and even pays for your ACT, and SAT!
As I went through almost four years at Piedmont High School I have learned one thing, attending the right school makes a difference. At PHS, the teachers are well educated and most really care and want to challenge the students, but are underpaid. They are understaffed for the amount of students the school contains, and have limited budgets so the children learn very economically. Although, I have had amazing teachers whoa re willing to help with anything you need. Sports are average in general, but PHS does have a very strong wrestling team that currently went to States and won. The campus is similar to a university in the sense you walk to different building for classes but it is very safe and there is always a police officer on campus. The school is old so the facilities need remodeling in most classrooms and bathrooms.The school does have a very nice football stadium, gymnasium, track field, and tennis courts for those who play sports.
