Call for Google Reviews:

As part of our admissions outreach efforts, all current families and students are invited to write a Google review in support of Revolution School. Positive feedback from our current families really helps us to attract new families. And it’s easy! Just look us up on Google Maps and scroll down to leave a review. Your support mean so much.

We are thrilled to share that last week we kicked off our partnership with Forza Wellness as part of our wellness program. Twice a week, students will participate in group work and personalized training at the gym. We have been dreaming about a partnership like this for a while and it has finally come to fruition!

Last week the 11th and 12th grade students visited Temple University. Our tour guide, Brian, was a Junior history major. He showed us the Student Center, the Library, the business school, the arts buildings, some science buildings, and the bell tower. Titus was especially taken by the experience. Titus shared, “I really liked the environment. Temple felt like an extended version of a good public high school, but all the students were friendly and all had one goal, to graduate.”

On Friday morning, three members of the Philadelphia police community, Dr. Nicola Smith Kea, Inspector Jarreau Thomas, and Officer Ray Heim, joined to connect, and listen to stories, questions and comments of Revolution School students. This visit was meant to be the start of a conversation and connection around safety and community building. Students requested a return visit next week- a sign of a connection! Ask your student what questions or ideas they might want to share when we next connect.
