Mission
Our mission is to develop and implement a balanced curriculum to meet the needs of all learners in order to increase student achievement.

   

Mt. Lebanon School District Curriculum: An Overview

Mt. Lebanon School District is considered a state and national leader in the field of education.  Each year, 93%  percent of our high school graduates continue their education by enrolling in post secondary programs.  This success is a product of a variety of factors including parent and community support, a motivated student body, a skilled teaching staff, solid classroom instructional practices, aligned assessments that measures growth and performance, and a well articulated curriculum.   

We believe that our curriculum must be comprehensive and balanced in order to meet the needs of all students. Mt. Lebanon curriculum is research based, modeled from best practices, and aligned with state and national standards.    Within each program of study, students master essential knowledge, skills, and competencies.   This occurs by having students participate in a broad range of opportunities both within and outside of the classroom setting.  It is imperative that students apply the knowledge, skills, and competencies to real world issues.  In addition to mastering core knowledge, skills, and competencies, the District also believes it is vitally important for students to develop competencies in “21st century skills” such as those highlighted in our strategic plan.  These skills include:

• Communication
• Problem solving
• Critical thinking
• Working cooperatively with diverse groups
• Resolving conflicts
• Taking responsibility for one’s own learning
• Producing quality work


This website has been developed to highlight our content areas and the accompanying curriculum. On this site, each of the 10 departments has a separate link.  These departments are listed on the left side of this page.   Each link begins with the department’s mission statement and a general program description.  The information is then further delineated by elementary, middle, and high school.  At the secondary level, a brief course description is provided.   

If you have questions regarding your child, please contact your building principal or Dr. Ron Davis AssistantSuperintendent of Secondary Education or Dr. Marybeth Irvin Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education.
