Greetings From The Piedmont School!

There are many things unique about our school, and we are different by design – to help students achieve both academic and social success.We are a non-profit organization providing a unique, essential service to children in our community with learning disabilities and/or Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder ADHD. In addition to our full day school program, we offer specialized tutoring and academic coaching that incorporate appropriate teaching and learning techniques that are specially tailored to individual students’ needs.We maintain a small class student-teacher ratio with five to ten students per class. We do this in order to establish a supportive, non-intimidating atmosphere in the classroom. For our teachers, the heart and soul of their mission in life is to create a warm, family atmosphere designed to help the students they teach. They also are committed to guiding parents in how to best assist their children in overcoming the hurdles that have prevented them from being successful in school.

When students enter The Piedmont School, they can immediately take a breath, feel relief from fighting the system, and enjoy a place where they are accepted and encouraged to learn and grow. We focus on promoting respect and responsibility designed to foster healthy social skills and enhanced self-esteem.

I invite you to visit The Piedmont School and learn more about what we have to offer and see for yourself the supportive environment that surrounds all our students.

Tim Montgomery
Head of School
