What School District do we live in?

  • Along with residents of Kennedy Township, Robinson Township, Pennsbury Village, and Thornburg, we live in the Montour School District.  The Montour School District is a comprehensive public school system comprised of two elementary schools (Burkett Elementary School and Forest Grove Elementary School), a middle school (David E. Williams Middle School), and a high school (Montour High School).  The District also is fortunate to have the Ingram Resource Center housed in the former Ingram Elementary School. The heart of the family-oriented suburban community of over 23,000 residents is located approximately 16 miles from Pittsburgh and 15 miles from the Pittsburgh International Airport.
  • The District serves over 2,995 students, employs a total of 444 staff including 237 teachers, and boasts an extensive system-wide curriculum and an impressive variety of extra-curricular activities for students in grades K-12. Montour has the highest PSSA scores out of surrounding school districts and the fourth lowest mileage rate in Allegheny County.
  • Montour’s mission is to provide an exemplary and comprehensive educational experience that enables each individual to achieve maximum potential, to respect themselves and others, and to become a responsible and productive citizen. The District maintains a tradition of providing students with a superior educational experience. Our students are consistently recognized for their academic, musical, and athletic achievements, and our programs ensure that students receive the academic and social challenges necessary to succeed.
