Knowledge is Power

Welcome to our school! We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education. You will find that the site works just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop so you can find information on the go.

Staff Spotlight: Ms. Russell!

After a hiatus from teaching, Katie Russell is excited to be working with students again teaching music at the ACLD Tillotson School. Katie is originally from Syracuse, NY and came to the Pittsburgh area to attend Carnegie Mellon University where she studied Clarinet Performance and received her Certificate in Music Education. Katie is also very active in music outside of school; she maintains a private studio where she tutors clarinet and saxophone students of all ages and levels and serves as the Operations Director for Azure Family Concerts, a Program of Autism Pittsburgh. She can also be seen performing as a freelance musician and teaches Zumba fitness at Carnegie Mellon. She is excited to get to know everyone in the Tillotson community!

Spotlight Video

Do you know Dr. Molly Smith?  Not only is she our Technology teacher, but she also runs the Tiger Zone.  To learn more about the Tiger Zone check out our latest spotlight video.  
The Tillotson School Tiger Zone is a creative space that gives our students exposure to all types of technology.  Virtual Reality, 3D Printers, Glowforge Machine, Cricut Machines, Sphero Bolt Robots, 3D Pens, iPads, Surface Devices, and a Green Screen production set are just some of the technology tools our students have access to.  Many schools have labelled their spaces as STEM, STEAM, or Makerspace Labs.  The Tiger Zone is similar to all of the above as it constantly evolves with new technologies and experiences.
