Mt. Lebanon School District Reviews

Overall Mt. Lebanon strives to reach perfections with an amazing staff, incredible curriculum, and overall a very successful school. I left one star off because of the pressure this environment creates, students such as my self are constantly trying to come out on top leaving the energy and spirit of Mt. Lebanon to diminish the sense of community most schools have. Along side of this heartbreaking aspect of Lebo, students find imbalances in their lives. Working long hours on homework at night, practicing for sports or clubs an unhealthy amount and pushing themselves to hard to get into a good college. That being said almost every student gets into the college of their choice, this is due to the incredible English department and the writing skills the students learn in the coarse of 4 years. I love waking up and going to Mount Lebanon School every morning but there is still changes that need to be made.

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.
