ABOUT OUR SCHOOL


  • Pittsburgh Brookline is a kind and compassionate community school. At this school everyone has the right to feel safe and belong to the community. Bobcats will be respectful, responsible and safe Pittsburgh Brookline has been serving the community of Brookline for over 100 years. We are rich with amazing parent involvement, a dedicated staff and the most amazing students in the city of Pittsburgh. 

    Pittsburgh Brookline PreK-8 is a neighborhood school over 100 years old, with deep historical roots within the Brookline Community. Many current parents and grandparents attended the school, and continue to support its educational efforts as important stakeholders in our goal of Promise Readiness for every child. Grades K-5 are housed in the main building while the middle grades are located in air-conditioned demountable classrooms on the campus just behind the main building. Middle level students travel into the main building to attend Visual Arts, General Music, Health/ Physical Education, Instrumental Music, and Chorus classes. All students have access to the arts. The rigorous learning environment is enhanced by a positive school-wide behavior plan based upon recognition for contributing to a positive school culture: Compliment Cards and DREAM cards. Reward ceremonies include Student of the Month, Compliment card Compliment card and DREAM card incentives, 25 Book Incentives, and quarterly ceremonies for Honor Roll, High Honor Roll, Perfect Attendance, and Citizenship. Students who achieve all three in a report period receive The Principal's Award.

     

    Instruction begins with 30 minutes of Intervention or Enrichment classes that are differentiated to support each child's learning goals based upon individual data. Students attend classes for eight periods each day over a six day schedule-Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, with one period for lunch and recess. Breakfast and lunch are provided in the cafeteria on the ground floor; students have access to a large grassy field, a basketball court and a kick ball court for outside recess, weather permitting. The core curriculum subjects include Reading or Communications, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Algebra is offered at the eighth grade level to recommended students who are proficient in 7th grade math. Reading Intervention classes include Read 180, Wilson, and Language for Learners. Three regional Autistic Support classrooms provide an inclusive teaching and learning environment with a focus on the core curriculum. Learning Support teachers act as a resource to other teachers and provide core curriculum supports based upon individual student data.

     

    Technology is widely used to support instruction—each classroom has student computers; all students in grades 5-8 have a writing lab and a math lab once a week. Two computer labs are accessible to all students, and two wireless laptop and iPad carts are accessible to the upper grades.
