Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome to Girard School District! We are a small rural district located outside of beautiful Erie PA.  We provide a rich learning environment that centers on students, meeting developmental needs, acknowledging individual differences and honoring all styles of learning. Building on the strengths of each student, Girard School Distirct sets high expectations for all in an atmosphere that is nurturing and respectful. Students are actively engaged in the learning process, developing skills for independent learning, and learning to set and assess their own learning goals.  Students focus on the knowledge, skills, and understandings needed to prepare them to be members of a rapidly changing and increasingly interconnected world of the 21st century. Our principles and practices are based on proven understandings of how students may best learn what they will need to know in order to succeed throughout their lives.
