School review Bache-Martin School (2201 Brown St)
Bache-Martin School (2201 Brown St) Comment
Dedicated and caring teachers, great staff, lots of parent involvement, a hard working Home and School Association, a Friends of Bache Martin group that is working toward re-opening the library...there are lots of good things happening at this school! Student body diversity is great, and the school so far has offered a good academic balance to my kids. The school has an ASL program, and my children are also learning some ASL as well. The students have a good variety of specials: Science (K-8), music (vocal), strings (starting in K), band, visual art, technology, writing, phys. ed. The teachers are approachable, they address your concerns, and will make sure your student is always challenged academically. The partnerships are wonderful; from the Art Museum, to the Philadelphia Orchestra, Give and Go, DanceXchange, Philadelphia Reads, Claymobile...they really give the students a little bit of everything, and lets them explore topics beyond the academics, which helps them grow. The after school programs offered in-house, plus those in the neighborhood that offer pick up from Bache-Martin; are so diverse! (Settlement Music Choir, Zoomballet, Soccer Shots, Snapology, Gaming Club, Young Rembrandts, Girls on the Run, Art Center, Sound Space) They make such a difference to families where both parents work!
