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. here 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.

Our Mission

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