Kentucky Avenue School

Tel: (412)361-7559
Grades: K-8 | 80 students
McEwan was founded in 1970 as the dream of three women, Mary Barlow, Bea Hamilton, and Karrol Bachman.
Mary, Bea and Carol shared a philosophy that learning can be fun and that our attitude about learning greatly influences our ability and capacity to learn forever.
The McEwan School maintained an educational system based on this philosophy until 2002 when the remaining co-founder, Karrol Bachman (Norton) decided to close the school.
Parents, teachers, staff, and community members saw the need to retain a school based on the essential philosophy of McEwan and during the summer of 2002 worked to establish a new entity bearing the name Kentucky Avenue School referring to its location in Shadyside.
Kentucky Avenue School opened its doors as a licensed private school in the fall of 2002 and is currently beginning its tenth year as a K-8 program.
We offer small classes, a child-friendly environment, skilled teaching, and a challenging curriculum conveyed through both traditional and innovative methods.
