The Philadelphia School

2501 Lombard St, Philadelphia, PA 19146

TPS' progressive program emphasizes active, experiential learning. Mixed-age classrooms combine grades 1 and 2, 4 and 5, and 7 and 8. The school makes use of the cultural resources of Philadelphia, and K-8 students spend a day per week in the fall and the spring at Shelly Ridge, a 125-acre environmental center in Miquon. Service projects are integrated into the curriculum at all grade levels. After-school daycare, sports and activities (including instrumental music lessons) are available.
