• Welcome to the School Culture Resource Hub!  

    Pittsburgh Public Schools defines positive school culture as an equitable teaching, learning and working environment where students, families, employees and communities feel welcomed, respected, supported and engaged socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.


    Looking to grow your  classroom or school culture? Start by reviewing look-fors connected to each of the Positive School Culture Outcomes (as shown in the logo to the left) to narrow down where you would like to focus your efforts.  Once you know what you're looking to work on, use the School Culture Resource Hub to help you implement new or enhanced school culture practices within your classroom and school.
