For the second year in a row, Piedmont was named an A+ school by the state of North Carolina. Our numbers and growth were very high because we don't just focus on the numbers. We focus on the students.
Not unrelated, Mrs. Barone was just named Central Region Prinicpal of the Year this morning in a surprise announcement. She was quick to give credit to all of us at Piedmont, and we certainly agree we are a great place, but one thing that sets Mrs. Barone apart is how she typifies the IB Learner Profile. Just take a look at the clever graphic Mrs. Gorman created and see how Mrs. Barone embodies each these traits, making her a great Principal.
She says yes to our ideas, puts the brakes on what won't work for kids, asks the right questions, runs interference, translates, and disaggregates as needed, all while keeping Piedmont a fun place to be - for grown ups, for kids, and for all of us!
Thanks, Mrs. Barone and Piedmont! Have a great year, everyone!
