PHS Mission Statement
It is the mission of Piedmont High School to provide quality preparation that challenges students to achieve honorably and realize their present and future potential. Four assets support this mission and high academic standards:
- A qualified, inventive and student-oriented staff;
- A generous, involved and supportive parent community;
- A K-8 program that prepares students effectively for the rigors of high school;
- A bright and motivated student body of high schoolers who are diverse in their talents and their contributions to our educational setting.
“Achieve the Honorable,” the long-standing motto of Piedmont High school means that all students demonstrate academic and personal integrity in their work. Being honest in all situations promotes learning, supports growth in intellect as well as character, and signifies each student’s responsibility to respect peers, teachers, staff, and the administration.
