  • The City School reviewed by a parent

    This school should not have added PreK if they expected to hold 4 year olds to the same standards as 3rd graders. My 4 y/o son was suspended for "playing unsafely on the playground". We had to withdraw him due to the inability or willingness of his teachers follow the written agreement and to meet his needs. We strongly feel his teachers gave up on him despite his strong academic performance. Additionally, The City School did not have a school counselor available which is negligent at best.

    Some Penn students returned to campus from break to find their on-campus and off-campus residences flooded from pipe bursts. After a "bomb cyclone" and a week of temperatures often below freezing, major transportation delays, and hazardous road conditions, these students join the slew of Philadelphia residents who have experienced burst pipes over the past week.

Penn students affected by University Realty delays move in, but continue to face housing problems

In December, the company provided moving services to 64 displaced students living in temporary units at the Homewood Suites hotel located at 4109 Walnut St. or Vue32 located at 3201 Race St. Tenants who did not want to use their services were given a budget to hire third-party movers instead.

While residents were originally told that they could move into their apartments at 4046 Chestnut on Aug. 15 last year, construction and electrical issues delayed the move-in seven times. University Realty, the leasing company, finally allowed them access to their units on Dec. 14.

    After nearly four months of construction delays by the leasing company University Realty, about 70 Penn students were finally able to move into their new apartment building last month. However for many, moving in has not indicated the end of their housing woes.
