At a Glance

Incorporated in 1907, the City of Piedmont is completely surrounded by the City of Oakland. But thanks in no small part to the fact that the city boasts its own mayor, city council, fire department, police department, and school district, Piedmont has maintained its unique identity for more than a century.

Originally a weekend destination for visitors to Piedmont Springs (which was part of the Rancho San Antonio Tract), Piedmont soon became a haven for artists and bohemians.

Today, the city is home to over 11,000 residents who are drawn to its tree-lined streets, top-rated schools, small-town atmosphere, and close proximity to downtown San Francisco.

In a Few Words

Award-winning schools

Living Here

The city of Piedmont is zoned nearly 100 percent residential, and commercial activity is limited to two small zones on Highland and Grand Avenues.
However, with Oakland’s charming Piedmont Avenue and Montclair shopping districts situated on either side, many can walk to restaurants and a variety of specialty shops and grocery stores.


Jack London once called this area home and wrote The Call of the Wild in the house he built here.  

Why Piedmont?

In recent years, by far the greatest draw for new residents to Piedmont has been its excellent school district. Consisting of three elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, and an alternative high school, the district currently ranks tenth out of California’s 756 school districts.
