  • Pittsburgh Arsenal PreK-5 is a neighborhood school located in Pittsburgh's Lawrenceville community with a diverse population that provides an academic environment that focuses on developing the whole child. We believe that every child can achieve excellence and it is our goal to provide students with the skills, knowledge, tools, and support they need to excel in life. We emphasize high academic standards to promote student achievement in a highly structured and disciplined school environment. The instructional program is designed around the District's comprehensive curriculum, emphasizing the Pennsylvania learning standards in reading, math, writing, science, social studies, art, music and physical education. Our school is a Regional English as a Second Language site. One-third of our population consists of students learning the English language. We have 18 countries represented at Arsenal and 14 languages spoken.


    To complement our academic program, Pittsburgh Arsenal Pre K-5 offers activities and programs to enrich the whole child. Our programming includes a community-led after school tutoring program, instrumental music, chorus, culturally responsive art activities and African drumming. All children in 4th and 5th grade learn to play the piano during music classes and there is an intramural sports program after school for 3rd - 5th students. We also build upon the leadership skills of responsible students through opportunities to participate in Student Council and Safety Patrol. We partner with various community organizations to enhance the learning environment including a health and wellness program with UPMC St. Margaret. Additional community partners include Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Reading is Fundamental, Lawrenceville United and Strong Women, Strong Girls to provide additional literacy, community, and mentoring opportunities for our students.
