School Districts in Pittsburgh and the Suburban Areas

Pittsburgh is very much a family sort of town-we love that about this area!

The city and the suburbs provide a great place to raise kids, and it seems like many, many of them end up sticking around for college or job training-or coming back later in life with careers and kids of their own.  Schools are a big part of our lives.

  • If you are house-hunting and have children, you are likely considering school districts as part of the equation
  • If you are selling your home, the local district’s reputation and ranking will influence the value of your home- and you already know that a the school district’s funding needs affect your property taxes, for better or for worse.
  • Kids headed to private school or attending cyber school? You may be interested in proximity to the physical facilities of the private school and to the amenities in the neighborhood for your cyber- or home-schooler.
  • We’d be happy to help you find a variety of homes in every district that you may be considering!
