Our Communities

The Carlynton School District draws its students from three fine communities, all of which are strong in heritage, culture and spirit. The borough’s excellent locations and traditional values make them an opportune place to live and do business.

The Borough of Carnegie

The community of Carnegie offers a rich blend of ethnic groups in a diversified economy. Located four and a half miles from downtown Pittsburgh and ten miles from the Pittsburgh International Airport, the land area encompasses an expanse of 1.3 square miles with convenient access to the Parkway West and Interstate 79. The population slightly exceeds 8,300 residents, with a small retail district located in the center of the community. Public transportation is easily accessible via the Port Authority of Allegheny County.

Through the efforts of a revitalization group, the borough sparkles with new facades, which offer an enriching artistic and historical flavor to the community. A recently renovated Carnegie Free Public Library offers history and a beautifully transformed theater. Carnegie also offers well-kept residential areas nestled in the hills. The town boasts of twenty-two churches serving many religious denominations. Recreational facilities are available at Carnegie Park and there are many playgrounds and ball fields throughout the community.


The Borough of Crafton

With its beautiful, historic Victorian homes, tree-lined streets, and safe neighborhoods, Crafton is a gem of a borough just miles from the city of Pittsburgh and a mere 20 minutes from the Pittsburgh International Airport. Crafton's 6,700 residents benefit from their close proximity to the Parkway, Interstate 79 and the new busway.

The Crafton community offers a close-knit family atmosphere and strives to maintain that feeling through many organized community activities and well-preserved parks and recreational facilities.

A shopping center is located within the borough, offering convenience and accessibility. Many of the old and elegant homes in Crafton have been restored to their original beauty and documented by the Crafton Historical Society, adding to the dignity and pride of the community. A "Tree City USA" community, with a beautiful scenic valley, Crafton has been called home by generations of caring families. In 2011, Crafton was dubbed "The Best Place to Raise Children in Pennsylvania" by Bloomberg Business Week.


The Borough of Rosslyn Farms

Incorporated in 1913 as a quiet, clean suburb easily accessible to Pittsburgh, Rosslyn Farms is strategically located near main transportation links, downtown and the Pittsburgh International Airport. This small borough, enveloping fewer than 200 homes is defined by a well-maintained residential area and a geographically separate industrial area. At the heart of the pleasant community is the Rosslyn Farms Community Center, which provides meeting and recreational facilities for numerous civic events and youth activities.

A strong, active community club hosts a plethora of family-oriented activities for young and old alike. Residents can also enjoy newly renovated tennis courts and pool, a ball field, playgrounds and Parrish Park for leisure or exercise. The borough is located just minutes away from Settler's Cabin Park, which offers a wave pool, tennis courts, hiking trails and picnic facilities.
