About Aiken Elementary
School Overview:
Fred L. Aiken Elementary School is a K-5 building that is located in suburban Green Tree, PA, just three miles from downtown Pittsburgh. Aiken first opened its doors in 1965 and was renovated in 1993. In 2011, Aiken was named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. Behind the building is a walking track, a large soccer field, PA, a college level baseball field (used by Point Park University), and two community softball fields.


Aiken offers a diverse and comprehensive curriculum that meets the needs of its students in all aspects of their social and educational development. The school's core areas of study include Language Arts, Math, Science and notable special areas such as Library, Art, Music & Physical Education. Aiken students can expect a challenging course load that is designed to help ease their transition to middle school. Also, the school's small size allows for more individualized instruction and a more intimate learning environment.
Special Academic Programs:
Like all of the District's schools, Aiken hosts a variety of programs to meet the wide-ranging needs of our students. Beyond the standard curriculum Aiken offers gifted classes, speech & language support, learning support, life skills classes & English as a Second Language.
