They really stress taking the ACT multiple times starting as a freshman. But here lately they have really been pushing students more than they should, if a student has a grade below a 70 they have to come to before or after school "study hall". Yes this could be resourceful for some students but not all, maybe they struggle with that subject or the teacher might not be explaining something to well. They should have other students come tutor these students with poor grades and not have them try and figure it out themselves.
Piedmont High School is like no other. At PHS, students are issued a MacBook Air as a supplementary tool in the classrooms. Teachers work one-on-one with students and in small groups. This type of environment is commonly referred to as "blended learning," which helps us take real life applications learned in the classroom and plunge into our studies at whatever pace we choose. No child is left behind, but PHS goes further to promote the success of students by allowing us to work at our own pace. This instills mastery tactics. Not only that, but important skills that (unfortunately) are not commonly taught any more are easily accessible at PHS. Students can take Drivers Education, participate in drama productions, build robots, learn interview and job skills, and that's only the beginning to the plethora of opportunities Piedmont High School promotes.
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!
