St. Edmund's Academy
- Private School
- Pittsburgh, PA
- PK, K-8
Parent: I love the diversity of our school, and it's something you won't find in other school in the city. The teachers know my kids so well. They treat them like family members, which sounds cliche but is true. They have very high standards for kids in the classrooms but they teach kids how to maintain that level of rigor in an enjoyable way that does not cause them undue anxiety. My kids are learning how to balance their academics, sports, outside activities, and fun with their friends in a way that I envy! Most importantly though, everyone in school reinforces the messages about kindness, consideration, empathy, and respect for differences that we're telling them at home. This was something notably missing from our public school experience and, in my opinion, is worth the financial sacrifice to send them to this school. Choosing this school will likely go down as one of the best decisions I've made for them in their lives. It's a very special place.

Forbes Road Junior/Senior High School
- Forbes Road School District, PA
Niche User: Teachers here make the classes interesting to students. Workload is rarely too much, unless taking AP classes. The scheduling process can be a bit stressful for those with bad grades or state test scores. Many early college courses are available online through the Allegany College of Maryland, as well as other classes.

McConnellsburgh High School
- Central Fulton School District, PA
Senior: I like the sporting events Mcconnellsburg offers as well as the fairness of the coaches.
If I could change one thing it would be better safety and protection when entering the building. With the school shootings every school year, we need armed guards at the entrances as well as during school events.

Alum: I loved going to Southern Fulton High School. It is small, and very student based. The teachers and faculty are very good at getting to know there students, to help them succeed. I felt very prepared as I moved onto college, to be able to put my best effort into my further studies.
