WHO WE ARE
The Philadelphia School is a coeducational, nonsectarian independent school educating children from preschool through eighth grade. As a progressive school and vibrant learning community, we educate the character and intellect of children, helping them become engaged citizens, critical thinkers, and creative problem solvers.
The Philadelphia School educates children for a future that is impossible to know but not impossible to shape. Learn here. Go anywhere.
Our Commitment to Diversity
We are dedicated to building a community whose diversity touches all aspects of our flourishing. In learning, teaching, and play, we mean to understand and celebrate our differences rather than be ruled by them. We are committed to providing the resources and support necessary to encourage the fullest participation of every person in our school’s family. And we are resolved to take our commitment to diversity beyond that family, by both studying and serving our neighborhoods and our city.
