Pittsburgh Beechwood's strong academic curriculum emphasizes attainment of standards and early success especially in literacy, mathematics and science.

Each May the projects culminate in a community and school celebration, Nationality Night. Over 600 families and friends attend this annual event to enjoy student musical performances and visit the displays created by Beechwood students.
