Welcome

Fox Chapel OHara Elementary 3 copyIt is my pleasure to welcome you to the Fox Chapel Area School District. I am so glad that you are visiting our district website. Whether you are a student, staff member, parent, community member, or a visitor, please take the time to peruse our site and see all the terrific things that are happening in our schools.

We are committed to a quality education for each and every student. Fox Chapel Area School District provides numerous opportunities for students to learn, lead, and belong. Many of these advantages go unnoticed because they are entrenched in our practice.

Fox Chapel Area School District is committed to providing students an education that prepares them for a successful post secondary transition. Our staff is dedicated to being the best in our profession through a commitment of continuous new learning and professional growth. Fox Chapel Area School District takes great pride in providing each and every student a unique educational advantage through a wide variety of experiences in and out of the classroom.

I believe that informed parents and community members are our greatest allies as we strive to improve academic achievement for every student in every classroom. As your partner, I share your deep commitment to ensuring that your child and every learner is inspired, challenged, and engaged in a vibrant educational journey. Effective instruction for all students will require an unwavering focus and a commitment to working together in order to increase student performance. In partnership, Fox Chapel Area School District teachers, administrators, staff, and our families can create that educational journey by nurturing and inspiring each child in our district toward their goal to fulfilling his or her dream.

We are fortunate to have a community and a Board of Education that strongly support our school district. We are also fortunate to have highly qualified teachers who care a great deal for our children. The contributions of community members, parents, students, professional staff, service personnel, and administrators are essential to the education of our youth.

Thank you for your support,
Gene Freeman, Ed.D
