    "I love Piedmont Avenue School. My son is in Kindergarden here, and he is doing so well! I love that they have computer, art and science. Even in kidnergarden! With all the cut backs I am happy to see they still have a full computer lab for the kids. Parents really get involved. The teachers really care. Ms. Drake is absolutely the best!"

    "I am a parent of a first grader at Piedmont Ave Elementary School. My son started here in Kindergarten and we have LOVED this school from the beginning! The principal is AMAZING! The teachers care tremendously about their work and their kids. It is a diverse and sweet group of families and the PTA does a huge amount in support of the kids and their learning and enrichment. Last year's star testing scores soared! We grew 12% in math, 6% in English Language Arts and 10% in Science. The API will be calculated soon, I can't wait to see what it has increased to. If this is your neighborhood school, PLEASE look at it seriously and thoroughly. Speak with Mrs Ahmad, the principal, the teachers and parents and you will know you have found a wonderful school for your kids and families. But most of all, no matter where you end up, GET INVOLVED! It will make all the difference in the world to your community and to your child's education!"

    "My son was new here last year. As an entering 4th grader making friends and navigating a new environment was only one of the challenges we faced at the beginning of the year. Also, we had tried to get him an IEP assessment at other schools with little to no success. But, he made friends, had a great experience with his teacher AND we got the IEP all finished. Considering the budget stresses of OUSD and the struggle to get more parents involved PAES rises above the challenges. The Principal got a grant for a brand new computer lab the yer before we got there, there is science, art and field trips. My son got to go to Mosaic camp last year and he loved it and learned so much. Some of the other parents have mentioned diversity; its true, PAES has no shortage of cultural, racial, or socioeconomic diversity. The school has an inclusive approach to addressing all the children's differences. We are so lucky our neighborhood school didn't have room for an entering 4th grader. We love PAES!"

    "This is a good school that could be a great school with more parent involvement. The principal is dedicated and intelligent with the best interests of the teachers and students at the forefront of her considerations in everything she does. The teachers with few exceptions are top notch educators with a strong focus on promoting a culture of success. The one thing in need of improvement is the percentage of community minded parents willing to put in the time to make the school a success. The parents that are active shoulder an incredible burden in their efforts to make the school fun and fulfilling for the kids because the majority of the parents are either too busy to help or unwilling to help. The PTA works very hard to bring positive influences into the school but they need more support from the parents. All in all, this is a good school and I am proud to send my child there. I just wish that more of the parents would get involved. If even a few more parents were able to give time to the school it could truly transform this school from being a good school into being a great school."

    "My son has been attending PAES since 2nd grade. He was previously in a private school that could not meet his needs as a child with Asperger's. We couldn't be happier with his experience at PAES. He loves his school; he feels included socially and academically challenged/strengthened. Ms. Amad, the principal sets a great tone for the school and I see all the teachers work very hard to make their school shine -- I feel all the teachers support my son's growth, not just his grade teacher. The school is very diverse and the parent base is very dedicated and participatory in all school activities and fundraisers. There is a couple after school programs onsite and nearby (ex: Studio One, which does pickups at the school). The school itself is in a great neighborhood and we often find ourselves wandering down Piedmont for dinner at some of the great restaurants or for some ice cream at Fenton's."
