Piedmont High School Reviews
Piedmont has been a really good high school for me. I like that it's challenging and always offers ways to succeed. The teachers are willing to help at any time and show promise. The only thing that Piedmont lacks is diversity.
Piedmont pushed their students to be great and they never give up on their students on their academics
What I love most about Piedmont High School is the band program. I have been apart of this program for five years and the sense of family and community within this program always amazes me. I would like to see the amount of respect people have for others change. I want to see football jocks appreciate the band kids, and the band kids appreciate the art students. I would like the feeling of unity to grow more throughout the school rather than the feeling of the community be specific to one club or sport.
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!
I have gone to Piedmont for the last three years and I am just now entering into my senior year of high school. I have had some bullying occur as well as some not so great teachers, but overall it has been an okay experience.
I’ve had such a great experience at Piedmont. The student body is really family oriented and all the faculty members support your aspirations and help you achieve them. I wouldn’t change anything about the school, I think the environment has helped me grow as a person and learn new things for my upcoming year in college.
Academically, Piedmont is a great school and provides many advanced opportunities for students on the path to higher education. Piedmont, however, is an older school and state funding for facility improvement could be put to good use.
The school is smaller in comparison to other North Carolina schools. Piedmont is an excellent school because of the student to teacher ratio and the teachers have implemented a rotating tutoring schedule for after school. It is also not uncommon to hear from teachers outside of school through contact with parents to give updates on grades, encouragement, and feedback.
I like the teachers at piedmont high school. They do the best teaching and I have learned so much. I also feel really safe when I am there and don’t have to worry about anything. I also like the type of people that go to piedmont I get along with a lot of people there and have a lot of friends. Piedmont is different then other kind of schools we are like family.
My expirence at this high school has been great! During my 4 years I’ve had nothing but the best help from my teachers and administration. Very good school.
Everyone Is very caring and the teachers really bond with students over the years of attendance. My school feels like a family.
While the campus is gorgeous, there is a major problem with discrimination and also lazy teachers. Some teachers are good, but others just don't care. There are many opportunities that are simply not talked about enough for students to be able to utilize, such as a history club and AP classes that are kind of hidden. Overall, many things should be changed, but I feel like my experience wouldn't be significantly better at another high school
Excellent school, they really help prepare the teens for college. From the first day we attended the high school, Dr Tyson was talking to the Freshman about college from day 1.
Overall communication is very good; however, better information and more advance notice on senior events coming up would be helpful, especially related to pictures and announcements. Also need to be clear with provider on whether class rings are going directly to the student's home or to the school. We had to make calls on three different days to the school and Jostens to get this resolved. We did receive the ring, just not timely.
I personally like the teachers and staff at Piedmont; they care about the students and their well-being. Piedmont is a safe environment and one of the best public schools in North Carolina. I know I can count on my teachers to prepare me for my final exams and for the college work experience. This is a school that has a 95% graduation rate the past year, and that number continues to grow each year. I believe this a great school that exceeds all standards.
Piedmont Hish School was a pretty good school all around. School dress code was enforced more than concern for student learning. Attendance policy was not enforced, students were passed no matter how many absences.
