The Sharpsville Area School District lies in a rural community located in the western region of Mercer County, Pennsylvania, is comprised of the Boroughs of Sharpsville and Clark and the Township of South Pymatuning. The school district, which encompasses 29.3 square miles, is a one-campus setting with a K-5 Elementary School, a 6-8 Middle School and a 9-12 High School, as well as the Central Administration Office.
As of this date the total district enrollment is 1,177 students. The close proximity of the campus arrangement allows the district to coordinate and use staff and facilities efficiently. Additionally, it ensures unified and consistent curriculum implementation and enables the use of data-driven decisions in its everyday instruction. A final benefit of this close proximity includes increased staff
discussion regarding professional development issues and the opportunity to observe each other in the teaching environment.
The school district is viewed as the center of the community and provides opportunities for community partnerships through the use of our fields, gymnasiums, classrooms and auditorium. The Booster Club Tournament and the Buddy Guerino Tournament are just two examples of ways in which the community and the school district work together to help raise funds and provide opportunities for students. The school district also provides after school tutoring and summer camps for students to enjoy by providing enrichment and remediation for students that are willing to attend activities during the summer. Community members are encouraged to become a part of the school culture and have input into the hiring of principals, Special Education Plan, PTO and other organizations within the district. There appears to be a very good relationship between the school district and members of the community.
