  • The North Allegheny School District’s curriculum is the foundation of student learning and academic success. It is meticulously designed to provide a comprehensive sequence of skills and knowledge, ensuring that students not only meet graduation requirements but also experience rich and challenging educational opportunities.

    At North Allegheny, we take pride in developing our own curriculum. Our expert teachers collaborate extensively in a curriculum, instruction, and assessment review process to create a program that aligns with state and national standards. This curriculum ensures a logical progression of skills, offers clear guidance to teachers through well-defined learning outcomes and assessments, and is both challenging for students and relevant to their future careers and lives.

    We view curriculum as an evolving process, continuously improving to meet the needs of our students. The district follows a curriculum and program review cycle that allows for regular curriculum review and revision, ensuring both fiscal responsibility and current relevance. Even after review by the North Allegheny School Board, our curriculum undergoes annual reviews and updates as necessary. Our curriculum complies with Pennsylvania state standards for all subjects, outlining the academic expectations for each grade level and detailing the essential skills and knowledge students need to succeed after high school, whether in higher education or the global workforce.
