The Mt. Lebanon School District came into legal existence in July of 1912, the same year Mt. Lebanon was incorporated. The school district was considered a fourth-class district, since the population was under 5,000, which meant it was to have a five-member school board. The school housing consisted of a six-room frame building at the corner of Washington Road and Cedar Boulevard, and a one-room frame building at Beadling Road.
Today, Mt. Lebanon School District consists of 10 schools—seven elementary, two middle and one high school—and serves more than 5,500 students. It also employs nearly 450 teachers and 220 staff members and a nine-member school board.
It is an award-winning school district committed to excellence in education. The high school and Lincoln Elementary School are both three-time winners of the U.S. Department of Education’s Blue Ribbon Schools award and Washington Elementary School has received one Blue Ribbon.
