  • Pittsburgh Manchester PreK-8 is a comprehensive neighborhood school located in and drawing on the North Side communities. Numerous cultural assets populate the North Side; many within walking distance are utilized through partnerships to enhance the education of our students. It is the schools mission to provide engaging student-centered instruction that yields proficient and advanced children. We believe that all children are capable of succeeding in school given the appropriate instructional program and support. The foundation of the Pittsburgh Manchester School is to provide a safe effective school, driven by research, data and standards with a focus on instruction, student engagement, an emphasis on evidence, high expectations, parental involvement, ongoing monitoring, recognition of student progress, and strong, visible instructional leadership.


    Our program is enriched by a variety of strategies aimed at supporting the development of basic and advanced skills both during the school day and through after school activities. A thoughtfully designed mentoring program enhances the interactions between older and younger students so that all students benefit and grow from the relationships. In addition to the mentoring program, elementary students have the opportunity to participate in the In-School Scouting program. For the older students, an active student council provides students with a voice in activities. Additionally, Pittsburgh Manchester offers a variety of interscholastic and intramural sports including basketball, soccer, and a new cross country team. Current partnerships include a mentoring program focused on reading through Church Union, a garden renovation project with Sam's Club, a toy drive, and programs through The United Way and The United Methodist Church to ensure that our students and families are supported in all aspects. Family and community engagement is a priority with active volunteers that enhance the learning environment through their talents and dedication.
