A small school but yet it has such a powerful influence in education. Here at piedmont learning is combined with MacBooks. I did not realize that in college I would have to make presentations. At Piedmont, I made so many presentations; I was totally prepared for college. Theres so many classes offered where you can explore different career paths whether its computer science, health careers, agriculture, and many more. The community support is huge, from sports to academics. Our facilities are up to date and things run smoothly. Students as seniors are prepared for the world by completing this program called 3P. It helps with your steps after college such as interview skills and do's and don'ts. I have to say I thought many of the lessons I learned were not going to be of much value, but after I left I knew exactly what I wanted my career path to be and I had obtained so many skills. Truly proud to be a bulldog!

Piedmont High School is one of the best high schools in the state of Alabama. The school gets you ready for college by taking advanced placement, dual enrollment, and honors courses. We get dual enrollment credit from our local college, Jacksonville State University. Piedmont is great in athletics, being great contenders for a state championship every year. Piedmont is an Apple accredited school. All of us students use MacBooks and use blackboard to summit our work and look at our grades. Piedmont also has a great band. The Piedmont Blue Knights have played in parades at Disney in Florida and the Great Smokey Mountains in Tennessee.
Piedmont High School is a public college-preparedness school. There are many opportunities to take honors and AP classes. However, the school uses MacBooks. This can be seen as a blessing but still a curse. As a student on a honors diploma taking as many AP classes as possible only 2 of those classes are taught. If you are on any diploma aside from a honors diploma your entire school experience is through a computer screen. There is no teaching or learning. It is disgraceful. It is beyond easy to cheat. In my AP Government class we rarely use computers and if we do it is for home assignments. I am forced to learn in that class by not using a computer. I have taken 4 and a half foreign languages online and cannot speak a word. Online classes are horrible. They are a contribution to the education crisis.
