District Goals

The Neshannock Township School District has adopted the motto “Commitment to Excellence”. As a School District, we realize that educating today’s youth is a partnership with the community. We cannot do this alone. We need the community involvement to develop these young children into responsible adults.

Goals that support this philosophy are the following:

  • To be recognized as a Professional Learning Community that is focused, promotes collaboration, and is committed to excellence in everything we do.
  • To provide all students with a rigorous curriculum that challenges them and develops in each student critical thinking skills, problem solving skills, and the ability to calculate and compose.
  • To provide all staff and students a safe and caring environment where character education is modeled by all, and individuals are able to take risks and be innovative.
  • To hold all staff, students, and the community accountable for providing a quality education to our youth.
  • To form community relationships that build on the belief that we are committed to excellence.
  • To provide the students, staff, and community with assured technology experiences.
