PMS Mission Statement

Piedmont Middle School is dedicated to providing students with a comprehensive educational program that includes a broad-based curriculum, exemplary staff, and an environment that fosters respect for oneself and others.  Our goal is to create a community of students, parents, teachers, support staff, and administrators who collaborate in an environment of mutual trust and support for the educational development of the diverse student body. 

We believe:

  • All students can learn.
  • Students learn best in a safe, orderly, responsible, and inviting environment.
  • Students should have equal access to educational opportunities.
  • Parent involvement and support enhance the teaching and learning process.
  • Education is the shared responsibility of the home, school, and community.

We are committed to providing a comprehensive and rigorous program that is student- centered and encourages students to communicate, to problem solve, and to think independently, creatively, and critically in applying academic and social skills.
