North Allegheny School District Reviews

North Allegheny is a great school not just academically but athletically as well. I never had a teacher who I disliked, and they were always there to support me and help me to be successful. I truly am blessed to have gone to such an amazing school district! It is in a very safe area, has great staff members, and challenging curriculum that has helped prepare me so much for the real world! If anything could be changed about NA, it would be to have more space, or expand on the high schools because there are so many students and not enough space.

I attended NA k-12th grade, graduating 10 years ago. While not perfect, NA provided me with a quality education in a safe setting. I had teachers who encouraged me and was apart of a community that helped nourish my interests and abilities. I attended conferences, joined elite sports teams, acceptance into competitive academic and extra-curricular programs, and was able to engage in a multitude of clubs and activities. My teachers were kind and intelligent.

However, the district is not very diverse (racially, religiously, or socially-economically) and its homogeneousness leads to narrow thinking and a culture of self-righteousness and bigotry. My eyes seriously opened after I left the 'bubble' that was NA - and while I was prepared for most of it (aka - I excelled academically and professionally after college) I was woefully ignorant to the experiences of others outside of my community.
It's a factory, designed to churn out top-scoring students that make the administration look good. Graduating class of almost 700 and growing every year, most students never meet their counselor. The teachers care but are stressed, with too many assessment-related goals instead of actually teaching. The administration cares about no one, completely detached. All they want is the top scores and respect. Students are nice but very stressed. No one ever fights. No one's close friends. Too focused on the rat race. They are docile, obedient, and sleep on average 3-5 hours a night. Lots of resources- mostly sports. The track is black and gold and it practically smokes in the summer, because no one thinks about practicality, just how good NA looks. There's no way for students to be heard. Sky-high property taxes and the school's upper-middle-class privileged students make others feel lost. Creates anxious, terrified adults who can't think for themselves or relax.
