    Organizer Upper St. Clair School District

    Organizer of High School Leadership Academy 2021 - Phase 1

    There are six public schools in the Upper St. Clair School District. Three are K-4 elementary schools - Baker Elementary School, Eisenhower Elementary School and Streams Elementary School; two are middle schools - Boyce Middle School (5-6) and Fort Couch Middle School (7-8); and one is a high school, Upper St. Clair High School (9-12). Over the past decade, the district began an ambitious renovation program with the completion of a "state-of-the-art" reconstruction of the high school facility completed in June 2000, renovation and reconstruction of all three elementary schools completed in September 2003 and the Middle Schools Renovation Project completed in September 2011. With this restoration process, the district has gained modern school facilities with the latest educational advancements for our student population of approximately 4,100 students.
     
    We are proud to share that 96 percent of students who graduate from Upper St. Clair High School go on to further their education at a college, university or junior college. The district's professional staff is comprised of more than 250 educators, 72 percent of whom hold a master's degree or above, and a support staff of nearly 200 including custodians, nutrition center workers, aides, secretaries, maintenance and transportation personnel.
     
    There is great pride in the district for the many academic, artistic and athletic accomplishments. Our students consistently score at the proficient level or above on the various required Pennsylvania State System of Assessment and Keystone exams. Our students in the band, chorus, orchestra and dramatics are regularly honored throughout the area, and district athletic teams participate annually in championship playoff games at the district and state levels.
