"The School is very helpful. I like my friends and everything about the School. There are a lot fewer people here than in other schools." - Max (Student)
Our students often describe feelings of being lonely, frustrated and distracted in previous school environments. At Piedmont, students typically react to the calm surroundings and sense of community as what they like best about "their place to learn."
We provide a curriculum that meets the needs of children with neuro-typical cognitive abilities, who experience challenges in learning, language, and social-problem solving. The Piedmont School does not serve students with severe behavior problems. However, the School assists children with issues related to attention, anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorders. We currently offer programs for children in Pre-K through ninth grades and will expand to include a High School over the next few years. We also offer a variety of after-school activities such as tutoring and after care (e.g., Game Day, Lego Robotics Club and other preferred activities). Class size is limited to 8-10 children per classroom with one teacher assigned to every 5 students. This affords individual attention and differentiated instruction. When our children need help, they are comfortable about seeking and accepting it so that they may succeed over time.
