Piedmont Schools. It's why we're here.

Piedmont’s extraordinary schools not only attract families looking for an exceptional education, they also bring together those interested in building and maintaining a place where everyone belongs. The schools, the heart of our community, are why we moved here.

We are all too aware that a great public school education isn’t free. Each year expenses go up while funding from the government, and funds from the very generous parcel taxes, remain about the same. That is why PEF is here.

At its core, PEF’s work is to ensure the District has the funds needed to educate students. Every Giving Campaign donation, every Spring Fling purchase, every fundraiser goes to supporting a meaningful, well-rounded education. When our donors contribute to the Giving Campaign or any of our other fundraisers, their intent is to help fund our children’s education. We honor that intent. PEF’s volunteer Board of Directors works tirelessly each year to ensure that these funds are raised and go toward the areas of greatest priority to the community.

Each year, donations to PEF help fund teachers and aides, librarians, arts, music, honors and AP courses, wellness, and more. PEF helps to fund the things that make Piedmont schools special.
