The mission of Pittsburg Intermediate School is to meet the diverse needs of all children and to empower them to become competent, productive contributors to a democratic society and an ever- changing world. Pittsburg Intermediate is a fifth and sixth grade Title I campus that is dedicated to all students through hard work, high expectations, relationships, and collaboration among all teachers, administrators, and paraprofessionals. We feel that we do everything in our power to educate every child, so our motto is "Giving our all for all our kids!" By giving our all we intend to include parents, community, staff and any other resources we see fit to help all our students succeed in becoming the best they can be academically, socially, culturally, and physically. At Pittsburg Intermediate, improvement in academic performance is a continual, data-driven process with deep roots in high expectations. We are committed to the idea that all students will succeed. All the staff express these high expectations on a daily basis and work diligently to build relationships with students. Having high expectations is essential to creating a positive environment and encouraging and motivating our students. We believe that we should not be satisfied in just "passing" or "getting by," but for every student to give his absolute best in everything he does. The teachers are highly competitive and want their students to achieve on a higher level than any other class or campus. We not only strive to meet the standards set forth by TEA, we challenge all our students to achieve advanced performance on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness. We feel that this competitive nature really puts our students over the top.
