    Welcome to Pittsburgh Public Schools Athletics Department

    Athletic participation provides healthy, supervised after-school activities for students in a safe and positive environment. Students who participate in athletics have been shown to have higher grade point averages, better attendance, lower dropout rates, fewer disciplinary problems and higher graduation rates. Participation in athletics teaches teamwork, goal setting, discipline, sportsmanship, leadership, and other valuable life-skills.



    A calibration issue with cameras recently installed in our high school gyms prevented the streaming of basketball contests on the NFHS Network Tuesday, February 9, 2021. The District is working with the vendor to resolve the issue as soon as possible. The calibration issue will not impact NFHS Network viewers' ability to see District teams at away contests streamed on the network.
