Mt. Lebanon School District Reviews

As a student who attends Mt. Lebanon, I can personally attest to how great the academic opportunities offered are. The STEM program in particular is amazing as it gives students opportunities to shadow in different fields, listen to speakers, or participate in competitions. Many people say that “college is what you make of it,” and the same can be said for Mt. Lebanon. Many students go through the school district without participating in any of the academic programs, clubs, or sports, but many other students fully take advantage of the opportunties. The students that do receive a much richer and fuller education. My biggest complaint about the school is the lack of socioeconomic diversity. Particularly, I find it frustrating during English classes when discussing because majority of the school is white, upper middle class. This lack of diversity causes a lack of perspective for students.

We have had three children graduate from the school district. The most recent being Spring 2018. We had moved several times before moving to Mt Lebanon and the level of commitment one sees from Mt Lebanon's teachers is not typical.

The school district has served the community for generations and focuses on maintaining "traditions". This includes being "old fashioned" in that teachers set high expectations for students, expect them to work hard, and do not "give everyone a trophy". The teachers likewise work hard, and the high school teachers will gladly come in early in the morning and help your son or daughter if they ask for help.

However, the administration and teachers do not use "tradition" to block change. They are aggressive in using new technology and adopting new methods when they make sense and are proven.

The school district also has good balance between sports and non-sports extracurricular activities. There is something for every kid.
I love Mt. Lebanon. The school does such a phenomenal job at making everyone feel welcomed and prepares everyone for the best learning environment as possible. The teachers are amazing. So far, most of the teachers I have had are passionate about what they are teaching, making the lessons more engaging and more interesting. There are so many choices for which classes to take, and the wide variety of challenging, interesting, and fun classes makes me enjoy going through my day. The culture of the school is very accepting, and the students get along well. While there is a lack of diversity, people typically do not act superior to those with differences. Overall, Mt. Lebanon is a great school to go to for great academics as well as a wide variety of fun activities.
