We Take Our Responsibilities Seriously
City Charter High School is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Secondary Schools. But our commitment goes beyond that of a traditional high school.
We designed our school around the student — it’s our duty to ensure they succeed in their post-high school lives. We balance challenging expectations with supportive, caring relationships and we teach students take ownership of their own learning, the underpinning for success.
Interdisciplinary, project-based learning sets City Charter High School apart. Our students are not just taught facts and information, but how to teach themselves and collaborate with others to learn. We employ extensive use of project-based and other interactive and investigational forms of learning. Students are rarely sitting and listening – they are doing.
Our priority at all times is to protect all students and staff from harm. We are proud to have earned an “A” Health and Safety Rating, according to niche.com. This is due to many factors including our robust facility security measures. But safety these days must also include things like meeting CDC protocols to prevent the spread of infectious disease.
We’re committed to nurturing the student’s health as well as their mind. The goal of City High’s Cafeteria is to offer a made-from-scratch food program that not is not only fresh and nutritious, but also one that students and staff will like to eat. The choices are so good that City High’s food program earned anâ€¯A+ on City High’s Niche school profile, based on student and parent responses.
We understand that parents and families want to be involved in their child’s education. So we welcome it and offer several ways to keep parents up to speed. Our website has a page dedicated to parent issues, we regularly send important messages to parents and we offer a parent portal where you can check on assignments, homework, attendance, grades and student progress.
Parents are encouraged to follow our social media accounts @CityHighPgh on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
We understand that we are partners in your child’s educations. So we encourage regular, two-way communications involving student academic learning and other activities at City Charter High School.
Here’s how you can reach your student’s grade level principal and teachers — all in one place.
