The teaching staff will need courses on behavioral management. Foster was built on excellence and the younger teachers entering this school need to keep those standards high.

I came to Mount Lebanon for a wonderful school system. Definitely not what I got. A majority of the teachers in the upper elementary grades don't seem to have teaching as their #1 priority. My son came home saying that his teacher accidentally uses a bad word or swearing word all the time and she tells the students not to tell anybody. I think the administration needs to be informed of this- That's not right.

The school is tiny and parking is tight. The school seems moderate in its capabilities. Almost all female teachers. Maybe open the school up a little bit more and have a little more diversity in the teachers.
