Crefeld School

8836 Crefeld St, Philadelphia, PA 19118

Guided by the principles of the Coalition of Essential Schools and research on multiple intelligences and learning styles, this progressive school follows a flexible and collaborative approach to learning. Crefeld serves able students, some of whom have learning differences, and it accommodates differences in learning style through differentiated instruction. When necessary, the school works closely with both the student’s parents and outside professionals to coordinate efforts and formulate strategic plans. Various electives, with an emphasis on the arts, complement the academic program. All students satisfy a two-hour weekly community service requirement during the school day.
