“Give students something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.”
In our leadership, faculty, and student body, we strive to embody the beautiful diversity of its home city of Philadelphia, deeply valuing differences in race, ethnicity, class, gender identification, sexual orientation, religion, age, and physiological ability. This allows students to feel comfortable with those who are different to themselves.
Our student-driven curriculum places learning in the context of the real world: by participating in a study of Philadelphia traffic, for instance, students learn algebra, trigonometry, physics, statistics, debate, oral and written communication, critical thinking, and social and legal systems—all by actively investigating and doing.
A focus on natural, social and technological systems, and a curriculum that emphasizes real-world applications of academic concepts, prepares students to succeed in college and in life. They won’t just have a better grasp of facts: they’ll also be able to creatively and confidently think through problems.
