  • Pittsburgh Sterrett 6-8 is a neighborhood school and partial Classical Academy Magnet school located in Pittsburgh's Point Breeze community. Students are encouraged to develop and refine skills in reading, writing, speaking, problem-solving and computer use while cultivating an understanding and appreciation for the influence and contribution of various cultures to human history. Accelerated mathematics courses are available, as well as Spanish and German instruction and instrumental music. The curriculum focuses on classical history, incorporating interdisciplinary instructional activities in history with world language, literature, communication skills and the arts. At Sterrett, there is an emphasis on cognitive thinking skills, computer skills, and creative skills as all students are prepared to compete in the 21st century. Moreover, all students are continually challenged to excel by teachers, parents and the community at large working together. This relationship results in fostering a lifelong love of learning and a responsibility for one's community. With this support, the talents of all students are nurtured and each student is encouraged to develop into socially responsible young adults who give freely of their time and energy for the betterment of our society.
