Welcome from Dr. Parkins!

    The United School District is a school district located in Indiana County at 10780 Route 56 Highway East, Armagh, PA  15920.  The district serves the borough of Armagh and the townships of Brush Valley, Buffington, East Wheatfield, and West Wheatfield. 
    The district has two schools -- United Elementary School, serving students in Grades Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6, and United Junior/Senior High School, serving students in Grades 7 through 12. 
The recent elementary and high school renovation projects enhance the District’s ability to provide expected learning opportunities in a safe, secure, efficient, and effective environment.   


    The District has an enrollment of approximately 1,100 students in grades PreK through 12.  The two Pre-K Counts classrooms located at the Elementary School each contain 15 students in the full-day program.  The average number of students, Kindergarten through Grade 12, is approximately 85 students per grade.  The average class size for Kindergarten through Sixth Grade is 20 students, and the average class size for 7th through 12th Grade is also 20 students.  The United School District has maintained a 4-year cohort graduation rate of 95.56% according to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s most recent report.  

    We are proud of all of the many graduates of the United School District, and we invite you back to our many events.  We are excited for the opportunity to welcome you back.  We extend that welcome to any interested family, friends, and community members within and outside of the District so that we can share the many wonderful accomplishments of our students with you.  Once you join us, we know that you will enjoy being a part of us. And remember -- Once a Lion, Always a Lion!
Superintendent's Message 
     It's that time of year again, the time to give thanks.  I have many things to be thankful for, but because this is my school website, I focus on my thankfulness to those within the United School District.
     I am thankful for the opportunity to work at the United School District.  Those of you who are current (or former) students reading this should be thankful that you have (or had) an opportunity to get your education here at United.
     The District is a wonderful place to learn and explore what you are interested in learning and who you can become.  The various options that are open to students are some things that not all schools can offer.  United students prove, through their various educational successes, that they are talented and experienced in many areas.
     Because of their amazing teachers and other adults, these students have gained a wealth of knowledge.  And, more importantly, than imparting knowledge, the adults at United have taught students how to think.  It's great to know things, but if you don't think, others are unsure if you have that knowledge.
     Be sure to continue to learn.  People often overuse the term "lifelong learning," but every day brings an opportunity to learn something new.  Be sure to learn, and be sure to think.  Hopefully you can think critically, solve problems creatively, and analyze the world around you.
     And, if you can share your knowledge with others causing them to learn and think about the world around them, I am sure that they will thank you.  For giving thanks is what it's all about, during November and throughout the year.
     Happy Thanksgiving!
