Strong neighborhood schools

Parents want strong, safe neighborhood schools to be the hub of the community. Pittsburgh doesn't have many neighborhood schools left.

As someone who was once in favor of neighborhood schools, I now think their time has passed. At the secondary level the most successful schools seem to have a specialty. Sci-Tech, CAPA, the old Schenley. It seems at the elementary level neighborhood may be a good option but beyond grade 5 diverse offerings make the neighborhood option less desirable.
