North Allegheny School District Reviews

I love that North Allegheny is so safe and welcoming. They offer countless sports, clubs, and activities to make sure every student is involved in some way. Not only are there many activities, North Allegheny also has the best teachers and is ranked super high in academics in Pennsylvania. Since there are so many students attending North Allegheny, it is very hard to make a sports team. To make up for this, cross country and football are no cut sports that everybody could play and as I mentioned earlier, there are many clubs to choose from. I think school lunches in elementary and middle school could improve, but other than that I wouldn’t change a thing!

The North Allegheny School District offers its students an environment that fits individual needs. Along with well-educated faculty members and a vast, rigorous curriculum (regular to APs), the North Allegheny School District paves the way for the student body to thrive within a tight, competitive ambience, allowing individuals to break free of the cocoons that encapsulate their potential. The board ensures that its students not only thrive in their educational pursuits but also explore their interests with variable extracurriculars. The North Allegheny School District does a fair job of teaching its subjects through a holistic approach, providing ample learning experiences on the modern day applications of the subjects taught. It also is well-reputable for its inclusion of ethnic diversity, considering its location compared to more urban areas. NA emphasizes determination and strong work ethic, encouraging its students to strive for academic, social, and political excellence.
I personally had a very good high school experience. Several of my teachers have made such an immense impact on me and my academics; I have to credit them for directing me in my career path now. Aside from academics, North Allegheny gives importance to arts and music which I've always been thankful for. North Allegheny has given its students a plethora of resources to be ready for college and to further our careers.

Although NA has always been at the forefront of academics and education, it does seem to lack in diversity. While no one can fault a district for lacking diversity in terms of percentages, I believe NA can do better with fostering the present diversity and embracing our differences better. NA can educate its students, faculty, and parents much more on the racial biases and microagressions. Recognizing these biases and becoming better versions of ourselves starts with education.
