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. Instead our students will develop high level critical thinking, problem solving and social skills to achieve personal excellence while preparing for higher education and as participants in a global society with respect for diversity.
Students love learning and are taught in ways that prepare them to achieve unlimited academic and personal successes. To accomplish our vision we will work to build a community and culture of high expectations for students, staff, families and our extended community partners. We seek to accomplish this through the use of a standards based, data driven approach to planning and differentiation of instruction. All faculty and support staff members are committed to cohesive and aligned instructional practice and to the principles for collaboration and equity. Our family partnership plan involves families in high levels of data inquiry and supports their development as partners in academic achievement. Our Extended Learning Program provides targeted academic support and enrichment that includes technology, performing and visual arts and recreation in addition to multiple leadership opportunities.
