  • School Of The Future reviewed by a parent

    I am a parent of a 4th year learner and he has attended this school since freshmen year. His first year was excellent the principal was loving but stern. Second year new principal and it was OK. Third year jointing of two high schools and it went down hill quickly. Fights, cops being called, school lock downs. School starts time changes to 7:15. My son who lives across town must begin his day at 5:30 in the morning. Senior year again a new principal, new uniform shirts @ 20.00 a piece and he couldn't wear the old shirts. He has no computer because of a bad shipment of computers. You are informed a lot about your child's progress through out the year. I believe with all the changes this school is doing the best it can it's just a little to late for my son.

    Posted on 25 April 2016 The barbershop on 44th and Chestnut Streets in West Philadelphia seems to have only two floors: the ground floor for men's haircuts, and the second floor for women's haircuts. But there's also third floor, a room plastered with maps and signs, with people taking calls and typing messages: A campaign office.
