Muse Elementary School is one of seven elementary schools in the Canon- McMillan School District. It is a neighborhood school in a small, rural town setting, twenty miles south of Pittsburgh, PA.
The 223 students are in ten heterogeneous regular education classrooms, kindergarten through fourth grade. The staff and the community are committed to working in partnership to provide a positive educational environment for all of our students. In addition to the ambitious instruction, our students attend special subjects, such as: vocal music, instrumental music, art, library, and physical education. Muse has a hands-on Science program at all grade levels, and an Accelerated Reader program for grades 1-4. Computers and technology are available in every classroom (an average of one computer for every four students). Every room has a SMARTBoard with a projector and iPads are available for classroom use. We also promote an effective Character Education program,
stressing the core values of good character.

They also plan other activities such as: seasonal parties, Fall and Spring Book Fairs, Family Game Night, Egg Roll, Big Guy Night, VIP Breakfast, and Froggy Family Fun Night.
