I understand your points about the facts you have stated... however how does all this negativity add to any growth in Baldwin Whitehall? Can any of you who posted list five positive things about where you live? I'm beginning to think one wouldn't just move because of so called poor academics because there can always be improvement in this area. However attitude can either make or break an individual. Attitudes of poison tend to paralyze progress in many positions. I don't like the effects the poison is starting to have. I look forward to hearing everyone's list of positives to counter act the poison.

Billie, I had 4 kids graduate from Baldwin and still have one more that has 2 more years to go and the school is on a downhill spiral. What good does saying 4 positive things about my neighbors, street or house have to do with the school district going down hill. The school board and administration are the ones that have to improve this school district and they don't want to hear what the parents in the district have to say. Lets create more Dean of Sports positions instead of putting money into academics. Why don't our School Board and Administration go talk to Upper St Clair, Mt Lebo, Peters Township,South Fayette and see what they are doing for their students. How they put education before sports them maybe we would improve on our academics and get the school where it was. We as parents of students have ever right to be angry and not everyone can pick up and move to another school district. The school district is failing our students and they need to make changes.

Whitehall isn't a poor area to live in. It might be up over by Brentwood Churchview Road, but not in the other parts of Baldwin/Whitehall. The cheapest house that sold on my street this past year was for 240,000.

ML this is the ranking from the news paper that you posted Pittsburgh Business Times. We are at 219 not 217 like I said, (I did get it wrong). We were way up at the top a few years ago in state rankings but now down to 219. It is a shame that are school board and administration doesn't care about our students educations.

I don't agree that Baldwin schools are on a downward spiral and compare our cirriculum to any of the "top-ranked" districts in Pittsburgh. I have worked in several districts and being a licensed counselor and educator find many appealing aspects of our district. All of the same problems you say are causing our district to downward spiral happen at every district - Fox Chapel and Upper St Clair alike - and I know because I have worked in the districts to have a compairison.
