• Alert:

    If you are a resident of the Woodland Hills School District, this message contains important information. Until bus transportation is restored, Woodland Hills School District is offering you one of two options: 

    1. They will provide a Pittsburgh Regional Transit Connect Card

    2. They will provide mileage reimbursement to parents

    If you are driving your scholar and want mileage reimbursement, you MUST complete this form and mail it to the Woodland Hills Administration Building, 531 Jones Avenue, North Braddock, PA 15104. You are required to complete a daily log with mileage in order to be reimbursed. Woodland Hills School District will check attendance with your Propel School for each scholar that a parent is submitting reimbursement for. The reimbursement rate is the IRS mileage rate, which is 62.5 cents per mile for the remainder of 2022. Please note that Woodland Hills SD’ policy is that a scholar cannot have more than one form of transportation, meaning they cannot have a Connect Card, a school bus, and parent mileage reimbursement. 

    This update only pertains to residents of the Woodland Hills School District.

Special Topics in English classes that allow scholars to explore literacy through scholar-selected topics. They also have the opportunity to play on PIAA girls and boys varsity basketball teams. Prior to graduation, scholars must complete 100 hours of community service, an auto-ethnography and participate in Propel Pathways, a selection of off-site learning experiences such as dual enrollment, internships and apprenticeships. Together, we will work to provide a high-quality education for your child.

Building the Future

We continue to make history while building the future. We apprentice young people into experiences that teach them how to think and act on their behalf. Scholars develop and hone literacy, creativity, and reasoning to solve real-world problems.

We were proud to learn in a 2015 student survey that the majority of scholars at Andrew Street believe the teachers really care about them, think the teachers believe they can do well in school and believe they are getting a quality education. This sense of belonging and value has helped us maintain school safety and stellar graduation rates. Together, we will work to provide a high-quality education for your child.

Beekeeping

Initiated by scholars in 2009, the Andrews Street beekeeping program is one of only a few such high school programs in the country. Scholars become beekeepers—tending to the hives, harvesting honey, making other hive-based products, and completing a wide range of bee-related projects and research.

Honey sales have made the beekeeping program financially self-sustaining since it began, and in 2013 we received the Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence. For more information regarding the Beekeeping program email Mr. Brandon Keat.
