We at Piedmont Avenue Elementary School believe every child can develop a love of learning. We believe every teacher can stimulate our students’ minds in ways that will promote learning and successful achievement. We believe that every student can achieve beyond average academic skills.

Students love learning and are taught in ways that prepare them to make unlimited academic and personal success. To accomplish our vision we will work to build a community and culture of high expectations for students, staff, families, and extended community partners. We seek to accomplish this through the use a standards-based, data-driven approach to planning and differentiation of instruction.All faculty and support staff members commit to cohesive and aligned instructional practice, to the principles of collaboration and equity.
