Typical Urban School... in its worst condition
Pros: collaborating team of teachers, urban youth eager to learn and prosper, families are trusting & hopeful
Cons: pathetic management has no clue, misinterprets what constitutes high-quality education, forfeits high-quality teachers to pocket fund$ for themselves.
Great collaborating staff! Staff appears to be compassionate about student learning and development, works as a team for the best interest of the students. Children and Families are hopeful and trusting... God Bless Them. Extended day, some Saturdays, normal school year.
Kenny Gamble was has been noted as MY HERO of Philadelphia and the African American Race. However, the Management and Organizers of the Human Resources Team??
Disappointed to learn that this charter company of schools will not recognize teachers for education and work experience. This company does not consider a Master's Degree + 30 as most teaching and learning institutions in the state of Pennsylvania and beyond. This company insists on negating full-time teaching experience acquired before "official" Teacher's Certification. My Teacher's Certification does NOT make me a High-Quality Teacher... MY EDUCATION, TALENT, EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE, and ABILITIES make ME A HIGH-QUALITY TEACHER. S.O.S. Philadelphia!!!!!! Charter School Greed and Selfishness will doom our children. :(
Surprised to see a dirty and disorganized school. There were roaches in the front office and evidence of unrepaired leaks. Piles and piles of paper work and books everywhere, out dated school projects still on display...soiled dirty carpet and front office chairs.
School Reform should start with pristine cleanliness and clear organization...thee MOST essential ingredients for a successful school. I genuinely wanted to make the most positive impact and become apart of a team that wanted the same. However....
PHILLY CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE NOT CONCERNED WITH PROVIDING HIGH QUALITY EDUCATION........ just concerned with controlling fund$. Their greed is a disservice to our education system... betrayal imposed on our school children. — Politics perhaps?! S.O.S.
