The High school's renovations were incredibly. Along with new shops and restaurants at the waterworks mall and a new park openning along the river, my neighborhood has really boosted in the past few years!

Fox Chapel Area High School is an elite, public school located in Pittsburgh, PA. It has 1,413 students in grades 9-12 with a student-teacher ratio of 12 to 1. The area is very rich filled
Pittsburgh is a great city for families, but after growing up here for many years it has become a bit dull. I wish downton Pittsburgh had a more lively atmosphere. However, I have noticed positive changes that accommodate a younger crowd in certain areas of the city. I really think there is an attempt to cater to the growing college student population in areas like Oakland and Shadyside. As an upcoming college freshman, I chose to leave Pittsburgh for Boston. I was largely attracted to the lively atmosphere of Boston-more college students such as myself. I also like how accessible Boston is to pedestrians in terms of public transportation. I rarely use public transport in Pittsburgh, but I've already utilized it in Boston. I do not think I'll be returning to Pittsburgh, although I believe it has a bright future.
