My time here at Piedmont High School has been a roller coaster, but I wouldn't have wanted to experience it all anywhere else. I honestly am proud to say that I attend/ attended Piedmont. The teachers and staff thoroughly care about the students who go here, and it is obvious. Teachers and staff do their best to create a comfortable atmosphere for students. As well as providing the information and knowledge our students need for the future. I personally feel prepared for college and I thank Piedmont High School for getting me to this point. The one thing I wish for Piedmont in the future is more focus on seniors. I feel as if seniors aren't as praised and celebrated as much as they should be. Aside from that, I am happy to be graduating from Piedmont High School.

Piedmont High School has a very large art department and works a great deal with the community through their clubs. In my personal experience teachers would go above and beyond to ensure my knowledge of what was being taught. The teachers are also great in the aspect of relating to us as students while maintaining a excellent learning environment.

Different students I went to school with including myself felt like class schedules were unfair and a lot of people were taken out of elective classes and placed into classes often that had no impact on the career path they were trying to follow for college. Counselors worked hard with students to get them prepared for college, but when it came to giving students coping skills to deal with personal issues or mental disorders the administrators was lacking. In this day and time with the push to educate society in these areas starting with the younger generations would be a great way to change the repeat of history.
My past four years at Piedmont have been great, I've met some of my closest friends all while gaining a great education. The numerous academic opportunities allowed at Piedmont has supplied me with great chances of going to my dream college. Overall, Piedmont has a great balance of extracurriculars as well as academics that supply for some of the best experiences.
