North Allegheny School District Reviews

Excellent academics and offerings for students. College preparation is taken seriously. Extra-curricular offerings are taken as seriously as academic programs. Athletics, arts, and academic clubs are some of the best in the country as evidenced by awards and achievements collected by the school. I would say that I recommend that all buildings attain metal detectors, as this would ensure that students are safe. Socio-economic diversity is not found in the district, most students that attend are middle or upper-middle socio-economic status. The district is reputable in the county, state, and nation. Students and parents can feel proud to have attended district.

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.
