Community Resources

The Piedmont School aims to be a community resource when it comes to educating students with learning differences. We offer several opportunites for our fellow educators as well as our families and community members. 

For the past few years The Piedmont School has offered a full day workshop to area educators to share some of the strategies we use here at The Piedmont School. This workshop is free to those who attend and is supported by grants. We know that not every child is able to come to The Piedmont School, but we do know that the strategies we use

here at TPS are valuable for ALL students and may be beneficial for teachers or educators. This workshop is led by the experienced faculty and staff from The Piedmont School who are all specialists in their teaching areas. We have had teachers from grades K-12 attend, administrators, counselors, and even PE teachers attend. What we offer in our Educators Workshop is always expanding and while it has typically been geared for elementary and middle grades we are now also focusing also on high school grades. Strategies for reading, writing, math are covered but also easy to put in place strategies to help all students in a classroom no matter their ability level.

Typically, the Educators Workshop falls in February. Stay tuned for more information about our 2017-2018 Educators Workshop that we hope to offer in two parts (October and February- CEUs available).

These presentations are often given by outside professionals offering information and advice about important education topics. In the past we have had presentations about ADHD, Nutrition and Wellness for students, Auditory Processing and Speech Language Disorders, and Internet and Social Media Safety.

All presentations are located at The Piedmont School, 815 Old Mill Road, High Point, NC 27265.
