The Blairsville-Saltsburg School District is committed to being a high-performance organization focused on outstanding student performance, achievement, and preparation for a lifetime of success. Recently the Blairsville-Saltsburg School District was named one of the "Top 55 Performing School Districts in Pennsylvania" by Standard & Poor's. The Blairsville-Saltsburg School District was named an Academic Outperformer due to two consecutive years of a significantly higher percentage of students scoring proficient or above on Pennsylvania's reading and math tests. Standard & Poor's developed the analysis used to identify outperforming school districts to highlight outstanding academic performance and to help educators in school districts with similar characteristics identify appropriate benchmarks to guide their own improvements.
