A Message from the High School Principal


Mr. Luca Passarelli

To Our Partners in Education:

Welcome to Neshannock High School!  It has been an honor to serve our students, families, staff, and school community as the high school principal for the past 16 years – and the best is yet to come!  Since our building opened its doors in the fall of 1959, it has been providing Neshannock Township’s resident students with an exemplary education, opportunities for growth, and quality programs in a nurturing and encouraging environment infused with high expectations.

As we strive to meet the demands of an ever-changing world, we consistently evaluate our curriculum, instruction, and course offerings.  For a school of our enrollment, we are most proud of our broad and inclusive curricular options that promote successful communities of learners.  Most importantly, our programs are delivered by a dedicated, caring, and highly qualified faculty and staff.

We are pleased to offer six Advanced Placement programs and the option to earn as many as 36 college credits through our outreach programs with Seton Hill University, Duquesne University, and the University of Pittsburgh.  Our 16 athletic programs have produced three state championship teams in 2022, and our music, drama, and extracurricular activities offer something for everybody to stay connected to our school.

Recently, US News and World Report ranked Neshannock High School as one of the top high schools in Pennsylvania and the United States.  Our students consistently achieve above state and national averages on SAT, PSAT, ACT, and ASVAB exams.  The Pennsylvania Department of Education recognizes Neshannock High School as a top performing high school, as well.  Our students graduate with the tools to succeed in college, the armed forces, and the workforce.

I invite you to experience our school and District by attending our students’ various events and/or through our social media platforms.  We are immensely proud of our small school with big opportunities!

Most Sincerely,

Mr. Luca J. Passarelli
Senior High School Principal
