    I don't really have too much to say but don't send your child here unless you want he/she to get straight A's just because. Before going here my child struggled with math and other classes but while attendeing here she out of the blue became a straight A student. I've never seen her do homework only maybe 2 projects out of the entire school year. She was sent home with a textbook that was never used (I found that to be very odd), she never had gym or a second language class (8th grade) and her honor grades were never acknowledged. My child also told me herself that she's not being challenged and don't feel like she's learning anything.

    Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia
    Root beer, a popular beverage in the United States since the late eighteenth century, began as a medicinal beverage produced at home. In the nineteenth century, carbonated root beer grew in popularity, particularly after Philadelphia pharmacist Charles Elmer Hires (1851-1937) presented his version of root beer at the 1876 Centennial Exhibition.

    Some Philly pools close tomorrow: List of 2016 dates
    Philadelphia is in the middle of a heat wave, with a scorching weekend on tap, but some of the city's public pools will close before the hottest weather hits. Philadelphia's 70 free public pools (the most per-capita of any city in the country) begin to shut down for the season on Friday, just as temperatures are set to soar, with triple-digit heat indices forecasted for Saturday and Sunday.

  • I love children and would love to be a lifeguard in any one of the pools......if I could swim. I'm sure I would be turned down if I contacted the city. However, if you are saying that the city would take anyone to be a lifeguard, then the problem's already solved. Dennis, need I remind you that closing of the pools in such hot weather is no sarcastic matter but a very serious one.

  • Gina, I am in total agreement with you. Furthermore, the city does this every year.
    Why not hire as Gina has stated, it would give the teens a nice summer job and they could work up to Labor Day. Gina's thoughts are excellent and I hope and pray the powers that be take heed.
