Portrait of a Gladiator


Every school system is unique, but they are connected by a shared aspiration: that all students have an educational experience preparing them to be effective lifelong learners and contributors. The Portrait of a Gladiator at South Allegheny will:

  • serve as a collective vision that articulates the community’s aspirations for all students, 

  • be a North Star for system transformation,

  • provide for the acquisition of rigorous academic content,

  • encourage us to be intentional about fostering critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and other 21st century skills our young people need to thrive in this complex, rapidly changing world, 

  • provide strategic direction for the redesign of the overall educational experience for students, 

  • reinvigorate and re-engage students, teachers, and community stakeholders.
