Why Young Scholars of Western PA Charter School

We are succeeding because:

Small school & classes:

We limit class size to 20 students per class. Small class size improves student outcomes, grades and test scores. Small classes allow each child to be seen as a unique, whole person, with his or her own learning style and pattern of growth.

Our Program:

Young Scholars of Western PA Charter School students study a rigorous computer and internet integrated curriculum in math and science.

Extra curriculum:

Young Scholars students participate in Extended Day programs including clubs, tutoring, and enriched curriculum.

Individual performance:

Young Scholars sets goals for students on an individual basis. Learning activities include both cooperative learning (groups) and individual projects.

Parent involvement:

Young Scholars believes that a large portion of student’s success involves a joint effort between student – parent – teacher triad. At YSWPCS, your opinions count and your contributions are valued.
