We are a small charter school from Pittsburgh that gives new opportunities and supports multiculturalism to students living in the city. Since we have a higher level of academic expectations our students work extra hard to excel throughout the school year. Many of our students come from a lower socioeconomic background and therefore do not have the resources and opportunities to take trips and have meaningful experiences.
