    What is Discover PPS?

    We now have more data than we have ever had to show the progress every one of our schools is making on many different levels. With so much information to consider, Discover PPS helps families make informed decisions about their options within the District.
    Discover PPS is a tool designed to make finding a school and finding out about a school easier than ever within the Pittsburgh Public School's community. Whether you are looking for your nearest neighborhood school, a specialty school or want to find out about the Early Childhood options in the area, the goal with Discover PPS is to make the experience of searching for a school easier than ever. We will continue to provide comparative data so that families can make informed decisions.
    In Discover PPS, you will find:
    • School Type
    • School Description
    • School Demographics
    • School Staff and Contact Details
    • School Location Information and Distance Measures for Walking and Auto Travel
    • PSSA Results
    • State of the School Data Points

    As we continue to refine the Discover PPS tool, we will announce any updates on the District homepage.   


    What is Discover Spotlight?

    Discover Spotlight is a new feature to Discover PPS! Spotlight showcases positive stories about our students, staff, and school/community programs. Do you have an awesome staff member, custodian, parent and/or student you would like to give a shout out to? How about a program or something great that's going on in one of your teacher's classrooms? If you answered yes to any of the above, talk with your school's FACE Coordinator to submit a spotlight story to Discover PPS!
