Superintendent's Message

Dr. Costello Welcome to one and all,

The Wilkes-Barre Area School District has a rich tradition of academic excellence, athletic competitiveness, and community and social involvement. Our district consists of a diverse student population that embraces and promotes the unique differences that each individual child brings to our schools.

Our district strives to provide a safe learning environment while giving opportunities that allow students to achieve academic success, obtain emotional maturity, and recognize the social responsibilities that are needed to become productive citizens of society.

Our past successes as a district are rooted in our long standing traditions and accomplishments, but our future stands on a vision that is flexible enough to provide growth for all our children’s needs.

Despite being urban in nature, our district encompasses many geographical areas, from a country setting to city landscape. Our district offers much to our community and its stakeholders.

We welcome you to join us and explore the possibilities that the Wilkes-Barre Area School District holds for you and your children. Welcome!
