Brashear High School is a large, urban, magnet, public school in the city's historic Beechview neighborhood.
The school was established in 1975 and is named in honor of astronomer and inventor John Brashear (1840-1920) who grew up near Pittsburgh.
Brashear's Library Information & Career Center is a valuable part of the school and is an asset to students and staff. The library contains the largest collection of books and magazines of any school library in the Pittsburgh Public School District. It is computerized for circulation so that any computer in the building can access the card catalog system for holdings. The library also contains 34 computers for research and a classroom with a Smart Board for lessons by any teacher.
The school's auditorium and sports facilities are occasionally used for public events.
Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
