“USE OF TRACK BY PUBLIC: The public is welcome to utilize the track during daylight hours Monday through Friday when school is not in session or when students are not using the field for games, practices, events or competitions. These restrictions are in place for the safety and protection of our students as well as any public using the facility.”
The public is welcome to walk the sidewalks outside the stadium and in front of the High School during non-school hours. This area is lit and distance markers will be placed around the loop as a courtesy to the public. We hope this will provide a good alternative for the public when the stadium track is unavailable.

On Thursday, May 31, 2018, the Ambridge Area School District celebrated the graduation of 162 seniors. Commencement exercises were held at 6 p.m. in the High School gymnasium.
The Ambridge Area Marine Corps JROTC Color Guard led the posting of the colors, followed by the "Star Spangled Banner." Graduates and their guests were then treated to a performance of "Don't Rain On My Parade" by the Ambridge High School Concert Band.
Class President Dimitrios Niaros addressed his fellow graduates on the meaning of "We Are Ambridge." In his address, Niaros told graduates that no matter where they go in life, they take Ambridge with them. He asked all Ambridge alumni in the audience to stand in support of the Class of 2018, and in thanks for their continued support of their community and Alma Mater. Following Niaros' speech, High School Principal Ms. Janice Zupsic briefly addressed, and then presented, the Class of 2018.
Superintendent Dr. Jo Welter introduced the 2018 Hall of Honor Inductees, which include: Dr. Ken Cirka, Mrs. Karen Larrimer, Capt. Charles Rowley and Ms. Rhonda Wozniak. A complete biography for each of the inductees is available here.
Graduates received diplomas while Ms. Chelsea Benedict, Mrs. Noel Santini and Mrs. Karen Brecht read their names and future plans.
Congratulations to the Class of 2018!
The Ambridge Area School District is pleased to announce that teachers have voted to accept a decision issued by the Act 88 arbitration panel on Aug. 11.
During a special vote late this afternoon, the teachers voted on and approved the arbitrators’ ruling. The Ambridge School Board approved the decision at its Aug. 16 voting meeting.
The agreement, which is retroactive to the start of the 2015-2016 school year, includes a fair salary and health insurance package. Savings achieved through the healthcare plan will be used to support well-deserved teacher salary increases without an impact to taxpayers. Details of the deal are available on the District website here.
Following the vote, Dr. Jo Welter, Superintendent, expressed her appreciation to both sides of the negotiating table for their diligence and dedication to working out a deal that was fair to all parties involved.
“We are pleased the teachers have voted to accept the arbitrators’ ruling, and thank them for their willingness to thoroughly review the offer before casting their votes,” she said. “We know our teachers truly care about the education of our students, and we are thrilled to be able to announce the start of the new school year without the threat of a strike looming.”
Mr. Scott Angus, School Board President, thanked both sides of the aisle for their steadfast determination to reach a deal. “We are appreciative that we were able to reach a fair agreement that addresses the needs of the District, the teachers, the students and the community as a whole,” said Angus.
Students return to the classroom on Monday, Aug. 21.
