Message from the Director of Education K-12

Education opens up a world of possibilities for children. It inspires them to
dream, and instills confidence that they can be successful in everything they
do. The Huntingdon Area School District continues to strive for excellence to
provide our children with a quality education that will equip them with the
skills they need to be successful in life.

The programs and services offered to our students and the professional
development opportunities provided for our teachers support our district’s
commitment to student achievement. The purpose of this site is to inform the
Huntingdon Area School District community about our standards aligned
system, which is focused on student achievement. The components of this system include: clear standards, instruction, interventions, curriculum frameworks, materials and resources, and fair assessments. For more information on the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Standards-Aligned System, please visit http://www.pdesas.org.

Success in education is often measured based on our ability to prepare
students for the rigors and challenges of the real world. But, at the
Huntingdon Area School District, the definition of success is evolving. With
the efforts of our dedicated staff, new technologies, and innovative programs,
students won’t have to wonder if they’re ready for the real world; students will
be wondering whether the world is ready for them!

Sincerely,

Dr. Patricia A. Wargo
