    "My children attended The Philadelphia School, and it was a wonderful foundation for all that came after - high school, college, and graduate school! Thank you."

    "We have had kids at The Philadelphia School for 9 years and couldn't be happier. Our children are challenged to be their best selves, academically and socially. The teachers are extremely invested in every child, and we are continually impressed by how well everyone (administrators, teachers, staff) know our children. The progressive curriculum encourages children to think and learn in a way that is much deeper than memorizing facts. The homework is thoughtful and project-based - we never feel like they are wasting time just "doing." This school is a gem-I wish I'd had the opportunity to go here!"

    "We couldn't be happier with The Philadelphia School. The teachers nurture and challenge our kids. Teachers and administrators are responsive and collaborative when parents have questions. It's a warm and inclusive environment, and we feel so thankful for this resource in the city."

    "We are in our 11th year at TPS and have three children there. We find it to be an exceptional place with innovative, project based learning, devoted and talented teachers and staff and a community of parents that are unique, fun and interesting. Perhaps the best evidence of the value of a TPS education is the fact that my daughter, now in 8th grade and applying to high schools, has been accepted to all the schools she applied to. In fact, many of the people we met during our high school visits commented on how much they like kids from TPS. They describe them as being articulate, enthusiastic learners and an asset to the high schools they attend."

    "My children have been at TPS since preschool and this is currently our 7th year there. We love TPS, it is truly a home away from home. My kids feel safe, nurtured and part of a community. We chose TPS for it's progressive curriculum, environmental studies program (city kids explore and learn about nature weekly and have class outside in a beautiful, wooded , protected park on the outskirts of center city). The Spanish, Art, Music, Technology and PE programs help to round out the vibrant academics. TPS kids are talented writers, math geeks, book worms, critical thinkers, problem solvers, friendly, amazing kids. The teachers and staff are talented, intelligent, available, and truly know and care about your child. TPS also has an involved parent community. Monthly meetings, parent /support groups, committee work, volunteer efforts, or just spending time in your child's classroom. Parents are always welcome at the school."
