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.
