Our District

Penn Hills is the second-largest community in Allegheny County. The community is serviced by the Penn Hills School District, which has three buildings currently housing over 3,500 students. Elementary students in K through grade 5 are housed in a central elementary building.  A middle school serves grades 6 through 8 and the senior high school grades 9 through 12.

The cultural, socioeconomic, racial, religious, and educational differences that exist in Penn Hills make it a unique, diverse community. The District recognizes these factors and the impact they have on the school system. We address these issues through differentiated educational interventions and schoolwide behavior programs that outline consistent behavioral expectations and offer positive recognition for students. Through these programs, we work to provide students with the words and skills to grow as both learners and citizens and provide them with a common, consistent message.

Our Mission

The Penn Hills School District is committed to excellence in education and improved opportunities for all, with the focus on student learning.

Our Vision

The vision of the Penn Hills School District is to engage our entire community to inspire individual students to their highest levels of reading and academic achievement while instilling a commitment to service, respect, and life-long learning.
