At Piedmont Avenue Elementary, we inspire children to love learning and we promote a college going culture by naming each classroom after a college. We emphasize student engagement in every classroom with high academic expectations and a rigorous curriculum based on the Common Core Standards. We are a Blending Learning Community focused on personalized learning with use of technology daily. We also offer leveled classroom libraries, academic group discussions, FOSS Science; and data-driven acceleration lessons as well as enrichment activities such as our computer lab, sports, instrumental music, and African Dance. Above all, we promote collaboration, equity, and cultural competence. We see our cultural diversity as an asset and we celebrate our love and respect for each other with ongoing multicultural activities. As a Full-Service Community School, we have the Piedmont Avenue Branch of the Oakland Public Library and we offer counseling services from the Ann Martin Wellness Center on our site. Parents are active on our PTA, SSC, and Dad's Club. Join our school family and be a part of the Piedmont Avenue Panther Pride!
