Strong Education, Strong Foundation
The concept of urban education may evoke stereotypes of the under-resourced “inner-city school.” Not so in Deutschtown, where both public and private schools offer quality options for a variety of children and their families. And, early-learning facilities abound, including a preschool right in the award-winning Children’s Museum! Further, A+ Schools, open to all parents, serves as the community advocacy non-profit that supports the improvement of the City’s public schools.
Pittsburgh Public Schools:
Pittsburgh Allegheny Traditional Academy offers academy-level instruction in a school that includes a full-time librarian, swimming pool and auditorium, comprehensive music and art, and solid test scores. Collaborations between parents, educators and area museums support this school, which ranks among the City’s top five public elementary schools. And, nationally-ranked Blue Ribbon Manchester Charter School, in nearby Manchester, boasts award-winning curriculum. City residents may also send their children to the neighborhood “feeder” school, Martin Luther King, Jr. Accelerated Learning Academy, or they may apply to another Pittsburgh Public Schools of choice.
Those seeking parochial or private education will find two Deutschtown schools: Cardinal Wright Regional School, a K – 8 Catholic School, and St. Matthew Christian Academy, a small-classroom, classical education.
From infant to school-age, the tender years are critical, and parents need quality care they can trust. Deutschtown options range from full-time infant care to preschool to after-school care. Contact these providers, directly, for more information.
