Our Mission and Philosophy

Port Allegany School District administrators are proud to carry on the traditions and philosophies established decades ago, yet which continue to hold relevant in today’s society. We believe we are here to serve the community, and that our community should, in turn, be willing to help as we implement our philosophy and objectives.

Our Philosophy

We believe that the school is an institution which should strive to equip each student with the necessary skills to realize his/her potential as a rational and affective being; one which should help to prepare each student to understand the complex and changing nature of his/her world, to meet the practical challenges of life, and to understand that a richness and breadth of life exist beyond the practical.

We invite you to read the full text of our philosophy. It is our hope that you will catch our vision and join us in our endeavors to fully prepare our students for the future, today.
