Mt. Lebanon Senior High School Reviews

Mt. Lebanon is a phenomenal school for people of so many different interests. Not only are the academics wonderful, but there is this amazing school culture and sense of community that brings people of very different interests together. One example is when our principal was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the entire student section, football team, marching band, and community members all wore shirts to honor him at the first home football game. It truly is a special place with amazing academics that prepare you well for college and give you amazing opportunities, while also giving you the same opportunities outside of the classroom. Overall, the culture of just nice people combined with the opportunities makes it a great school!

At Mt. Lebanon Senior High School, the high quantity and quality of resources available, combined with the quality of the staff, gives students the tools to advance in their interests and academic endeavors. The passion and dedication of the administration create an environment that stimulates academic growth. Additionally, the school boasts excellent athletics programs, where peers of athletes are eager to participate in expressing school spirit at games and meets. Though somewhat lacking in diversity, the community provides a very warm and welcoming environment for staff and students from every walk of life.
Mt. Lebanon provided a very strong educational background, with special emphasis on English and writing skills, and exceptional (for the most part) teachers in STEM that explained concepts very well and were clearly invested in the futures of their students. There was a great deal of support from teachers, guidance counselors, and from the gifted program coordinator that allowed for good academic planning. While the environment was highly competitive, with hard work and the abundance of resources, students are readily able to thrive.
