Welcome to Penn Hills
The Penn Hills School District (PHSD) is a mid sized, public school district located in Pittsburgh, serving the community of Penn Hills, which is about 10 miles (16 km) east of Downtown Pittsburgh. According to 2000 federal census data, it served a resident population of 46,809. By 2010, the district's population declined to 42,431 people. The educational attainment levels for the Penn Hills School District population (25 years old and over) were 91.8% high school graduates and 22.8% college graduates. The district is one of the 500 public school districts of Pennsylvania.
The oldest recorded school building in Penn Hills was the original Washington School, built in 1845 in the Universal neighborhood on land donated by local farmer Charles Cunliff.
A replacement building opened in 1904.
However, 2014 marks the 180th anniversary of the passage of the Pennsylvania Education Act, which resulted in the construction of several one-room log-built schoolhouses in the Penn Hills area with names such as Quincey, Mt. Hope, Hebron, Jefferson and Monroe.
Penn Hills is a great for shops and is close to downtown Pittsburgh. I live, worked and graduated from Penn Hills high school, which allows me to know the people, businesses, area and school district very well. The thing I love about Penn Hills the most in the quiet neighborhoods and great school district
