State of the School×
Each of our schools has good news to share and areas for growth on the journey to reach our four District goals of accelerating achievement, eliminating racial disparities, developing a student-focused culture, and becoming a District of first choice. We know that success is more than what can just be measured by a single test score from a state assessment. Schools are complex places that must be understood through multiple lenses. Below are key data points that show how Pittsburgh Allderdice High School is doing in specific areas that align to our District goals. As you review the data, keep the following summary of good news and possible areas for growth in mind as you develop your own questions about how this school is performing, and think about how you can partner with us to accelerate the achievement of all students in this school. For more information, please see our glossary.
In 2013 the Pennsylvania Department of Education released the first School Performance Profiles (SPP) for all public schools in the state. The SPP is a new state measurement system that grades every public, charter, cyber charter school and technology center on a 100-point scale. Access to the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile for each school is available at paschoolperformance.org. Click here for School Performance Profiles for all of our schools.
