    My kids have been here for four years and I can safely say they have received outstanding care and education. My daughter received an advanced on her PSSA and it's because of the teaching at Allegheny. They go above and beyond the traditional curriculum partner with museums and universities and challenge students to do the best they can.

    The teachers at Allegheny go above and beyond the call of duty. I always feel like a welcome (and expected) part of my child's education and my daughter understands the high expectations set by principal teachers and staff. I expect to see great returns from the investment the school has made in the intensive instruction in reading at the end of the class day and in the morning math tutoring. This is a school focused on meeting the specific learning needs of each child whether their needs are for remedial education or gifted enrichment.

    Allegheny Traditional Academy puts kids first with a fantastic combination of structure principal teachers staff curriculm. The expecations for everyone are clear cut and set high. The results - everyone works together to help our kids learn grow and achieve. The children know what they need to do - and work hard to achieve their potential.
