The History of Clairview School

The Clairview School opened in 2000 to support students all across Westmoreland County.  Before Clairview, the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit operated two separate sites, the Woodsview School and St. Clair School, both offering a variety of student services.  Consolidating services into one school in the Greensburg area provided a geographically central location for school districts.  Presently, programs and services at the Clairview School address each student's unique needs through an individualized and adapted curriculum, a focus on social-emotional learning, and partnerships in our regional communities.  The school population has grown to include students from across county borders in Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Fayette, and Indiana counties.

The Clairview School endeavors to sustain equitable learning environments that enrich and engage all students.  Administrators, teachers, and staff continue to serve each student with leading-edge approaches, and innovative related services, consistently collaborating with district and state partners to make dreams a reality.  The school is committed to providing equity and regional leadership in special education for all of its constituents.  With established and supportive relationships with district partners, families, and regional agencies, the Clairview School is a nexus of unique learning environments for students across southwestern Pennsylvania.
