Being at Piedmont since kindergarten has probably been the best thing my parents could have done. I could not think of a better place to grow up. The high school is great, I have had such an amazing time, my group of friends and support system academically could not have been better. Not everyone loves Piedmont but what is not to love!
Review Piedmont High School
Although the school isn't diverse racially or economically, it is improving racially as the years go by. However, the domination of wealthy students will most likely remain. Many teachers who manage to stay there because of tenure should not be there but this is somewhat balanced out by great teachers who are invested in the students. The food is definitely overpriced and not worth buying. The best thing about it is that there is a lot of pressure to do well which pushes students but this creates a lot of stress as well.
Almost all of the students at Piedmont high school live in Piedmont. Which as a city is the exact opposite of diverse, and this is highlighted by the fact that it is so close to Oakland and berekley that are both very diverse. The teachers at this school aren't good. They think they are great teachers because they teach at a good school but most of them aren't very organized or nice. The faculty is old and gross with a poor layout, but they do have plans to redo it. The cafeteria food isn't good and there's only one other food place that's close. The administrations desicions are usually not what is best for the students and they make clubs and activities not fun. The school culture and very clique and judgmental. No body likes each other and there is way to much drama between friends.
