• 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.

About our school

Photo of Propel Northside

Propel Northside opened in 2011 and serves scholars in grades K -8. Propel Northside is the eighth Propel School in the greater Pittsburgh area, and the first Propel school located within the City of Pittsburgh.

Propel Northside, in partnership with Penn State Greater Allegheny, initiated Project Team. This program encourages good behavior through teamwork. There are 6 foundations for culture that serve as the base of the program.

Our differentiated instruction classroom gives scholars the chance to decide where they will sit and what they will learn. Scholars may choose a spot on the couch, at the computer, on the carpet or at their own desk space. Whether they are learning addition on a tablet or through blocks and worksheets, backed by research, scholars feel empowered and succeed when they have a say in their learning.

Propel Northside is designated as a community school, which, through a set of partnerships with other community resources, maintains an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement meant to improve scholar learning while supporting stronger families and healthier communities.

Our Mission

In our house, we’ll utilize the system implementing the six foundational characteristics that will advance student achievement and teacher effectiveness.

We Are A COMMUNITY SCHOOL

Propel Northside is designated as a community school. Through a set of partnerships with other community resources, Propel Hazelwood maintains an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement. Scholars are physically, socially and emotionally healthy. Scholars learn in a safe and supportive environment. This approach leads to improved scholar learning while supporting stronger families and healthier communities.

Community schools contain a host of opportunities and supports built in that give scholars and families the tools they need to learn and grow.
