Piedmont Avenue Elementary School Reviews

It amazes me how parents who don't send their kids to our school still want to comment about "things they've heard." I have two children at Piedmont Avenue Elementary School. We have a fantastic principal, wonderful teachers, and a growing, supportive parent community. The school is a safe and nurturing place for kids to learn.

If you've heard rumors to the contrary, I ask only that you come visit the school and see for yourself. Take a tour. Meet with our principal. Come to a PTA meeting. You'll see these rumors are untrue and nothing more than some parent trying to justify their own decision to pay for private schools, instead of supporting a terrific public school in their own neighborhood.

My children attend Piedmont Ave. School and absolutely love it!
The School Staff is welcoming and sincerely take interest is all the students. With the limited school fundings, the staff is very innovated, creative  and always finds ways to make learning fun and interesting.  The Principal, Mrs. Ahmad is wonderful, she is progressive and truly believes that  a good education is a must. By focusing on the the childrens' future and excited about college.

I've heard some stories about this school that are concerning, such as a student having been bullied by other students and ending up in the hospital.
