    Could a North Philadelphia community center end up as a gas station?

Named after the first black athlete to win a Grand Slam tennis title, the North Philadelphia facility was modeled on suburban tennis clubs and boasted five professional courts, two of them indoors.

  • St. Malachy School reviewed by a parent

    I must say this school was not to impressive and I'm speaking on the middle school.The kids stay out of class more then they do in class.For situations that are minor infractions. The tuition is reasonable,but the classroom size is not .There are 30 kids in each classroom and you as a parent have to decide whether or not you want to pay money for a classroom of that magnitude.When technically the main reason parents send their kids to private school is because of small class size and personal instruction this school lacks both.This year they've pushed this "Blending learning model" introduced by Seton education partners google it.This group only recruits urban catholic schools go to their website to learn more It suppose to work with one group on computer and another group getting instruction,then rotate, they do not follow this model.All they give out is packets of work and hardly if no home work.Homework is important, because as a parent that shows you what your child is learning, with this model you as a parent won't have a clue all the school talk and care about is data. With this being said do your research before deciding to send your child to this school.
