Wilkinsburg School District is a small system of walkable neighborhood schools that has proudly served its community for over 100 years. Our board, leadership, and faculty promote academic excellence and personal growth through strong programs and community ties. Our commitment to continuous improvement in educational and extracurricular opportunities are evidenced at Kelly and Turner elementary schools, where programs and facilities are being upgraded, and through our middle and high school partnership with Pittsburgh Public Schools, which enables our children to take advantage of the superior learning opportunities at Pittsburgh Westinghouse Academy starting in 2016-2017.

Attending parents, students, teachers, staff, alumni and community members will have the opportunity to give their input and help build the framework for student success beyond high school. #PartnershipPride
