The Tyrone Area School District is a rural, public district spanning 176 square miles over the borough of Tyrone with coverage areas in Blair County, Huntingdon County, and Taylor Township. In partnership with the community, TASD’s mission is “to offer progressive educational opportunities that empower students to be responsible citizens and life-long learners in our democracy and global society.”
The district is home to approximately 1900 students with one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school. TASD is continually searching for ways to enhance their programs, while they teach students the importance of collaboration, creativity and critical thinking. There are many ways for students to get involved at Tyrone including clubs, athletics, and other extracurricular activities. Their school colors are orange and black and their beloved mascot is the Golden Eagle.
The small, tight knit community of Tyrone is surrounded by rolling farmland and lush woodlands. Recreational areas, universities, and shopping and entertainment are a stone’s throw away and complete the surroundings. The Tyrone Borough Historic District has buildings dating back to the 1850’s, when the community was expanded as a junction town for the Pennsylvania Railroad. The borough is also home to the well known Gardners Candies, founded in 1897 and famous for their peanut butter meltaways.
