About our School

Propel Braddock Hills High School strives to create a community where scholars are prepared to become active and engaged citizens through authentic and compelling learning experiences. College and career exploration, along with character building, are activities our scholars are engaged in on a daily basis. We are dedicated to social justice and creating a positive change in the education landscape of Pittsburgh and beyond. Our school values student voice and looks to build student leaders through a number of initiatives that not only reflect the world that our scholars see but expand their perspectives on both academic and social issues.



Our Vision

Propel Braddock Hills High School is committed to sustaining a culture where every individual has an authentic voice and thrives, seeing our scholars make significant, solid academic gains through high-quality instruction and engagement strategies that teachers continually refine and improve, and building partnerships and fostering advocacy and outreach to our community locally and globally.

We call these attributes the Community Values.

Our educators integrate these skills and habits into all areas of instruction in a developmentally appropriate way. The social curriculum begins in CREW, which provides scholars with a foundation for skills needed after high school as well as a chance to explore post-secondary school plans. In keeping with the shared leadership model, the Community Values have been defined by the entire staff and the scholar body. We encourage families to support the development of these skills and habits in their children by using the same language at home as is used at school.

Scholars will arrive to any responsibilities (school, work, etc) on time, dressed to meet requirements, and with the needed materials.

“I can provide evidence of self-discipline and integrity through my decisions and actions in high school that contribute to my post-secondary plan.”

Scholars will act in a manner that respects the voices of others, uses professional language, shows manners, and take constructive feedback in a way that show active listening.

“I conduct myself in a manner that models self-respect, service to others, and caring for the learning community.”

Curiosity, Adventure, Collaboration.

“I am empowered to work cooperatively through challenging situations, as I develop new interests and seek new understandings through a variety of unique experiences.”

Scholars will be a positive role model to others, be helpful to those in need, turn in work and assignments in a timely manner, and show integrity in their work.

“I can demonstrate my reliability through my contributions to the school community, and explain how they reflect the school’s mission, my academic and career goals, and community commitment.”

Compassion, Relationships.
