Pittsburgh Public Schools
Pittsburgh Public Schools is the largest of 43 school districts in Allegheny County and second largest in Pennsylvania. We serve approximately 26,000 students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 in 66 schools. In addition, Early Childhood programs serve three- and four-year-olds in classrooms across the city.
Pittsburgh Public Schools is experiencing a breathtaking renewal that is moving toward providing excellent education for all of our kids. Urban neighborhoods throughout the city have exciting schools with passionate and innovative principals, teachers, and staff who combine high quality teaching with a clear focus on the development of our students' characters, aspirations, as well as knowledge.
We have new high schools that are gaining global attention along with elementary and middle schools that are yielding great outcomes on Pennsylvania's state exams. We are even making or exceeding the standards required by our nation's federal requirements.
