Welcome to Carlynton

The Carlynton School District, located just six miles southwest of Pittsburgh is a small district uniting three proud communities, Carnegie, Crafton and Rosslyn Farms, with various ethnic, racial and socioeconomic populations.  Our schools offer small class sizes that allow for a personal approach to instruction.  We present a challenging curriculum to encourage all students to excel as independent thinkers and life-long learners, while offering each the support and motivation to do so with success.

The Carlynton School District welcomes inquiries from families considering relocation to our community. We invite you to explore our website for valuable information about our schools.
