We are pleased to announce our participation in the 2018-2019 School District of Philadelphia District-Wide Surveys for Parents and/or Guardians, as well as for students. Our goal is to have 100% participation by the close of our school year, in May 2019. The surveys have been designed to capture feedback from the school community on five key topics related to school improvement—climate, instruction, leadership, professional capacity, and parent/guardian-community ties.


We appreciate your participation and look forward to hearing your thoughts on how to improve our schools.
