The School District

Located just six miles southwest of Pittsburgh, Carlynton is a small district uniting three proud communities, Carnegie, Crafton and Rosslyn Farms, with various ethnic, racial and socioeconomic populations.  Our schools offer small class sizes that allow for a personal approach to instruction while presenting a challenging curriculum to encourage all students to excel as independent thinkers and life-long learners.
