ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Pittsburgh Minadeo is a PreK-5 neighborhood school nestled on a quiet residential street in Squirrel Hill. The school was named in memory of John Minadeo, a patrol boy at the former Gladstone School located on Hazelwood Avenue, who gave his life to help save others from a runaway car. To support our safe learning environment, the Student Code of Conduct is followed and supported by a strong School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention Program. Behavior Expectations are communicated through a framework called PRIDE: Polite, Responsible, In- Control, Do Your Best, and Engaged. It is a proactive, positive, instructional approach to classroom management. We hold ourselves accountable for preparing all children to achieve academic excellence and strength of character so they have the opportunity to succeed in all aspects of life.
There are several technology programs, a computer lab,computers, and iPads that provide additional media for student learning. All students in grades K-5 are scheduled for physical education, art, and music. Students are also scheduled with the librarian weekly for book circulation. The choral and instrumental music students prepare annual winter and spring concerts. In grade 3, each student is exposed to 9 new instruments. This is a great opportunity to decide if he or she would like to join the instrumental program in 4th or 5th grade.
There are many programs at Minadeo that support academic achievement, as well as development of the whole child.
Our students can also participate an annual talent show, play intramural basketball, and train for the Pittsburgh Kids Marathon. Minadeo has partnerships with community organizations such as Center of Life, The Pittsburgh Chess Club, Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition, Oasis Tutors, and many local universities to provide additional opportunities for meeting the needs of a diverse student population. We partner with MEDP to provide families with before- school care and after- school care until 6:00 P.M.
