Advice on transferring to Piedmont Middle
My son's application for an interdistrict transfer to Piedmont Middle as a sixth grader was accepted, but we are torn (we really thought this was a long shot). He really wants to stay with his friends—understandable, especially at this age—but our local middle school in San Leandro has a pretty dismal rating and our son would definitely thrive in a more rigorous academic setting. On the other hand, while Piedmont's scores and resources are impressive, I worry about transfer kids being treated differently/lesser than by others (we are not a wealthy family). Can anyone share their experience transferring into the district, good or bad? Thank you!
