  • Universal Daroff Charter School reviewed

    I have been a visitor at Daroff on several occasions. Located in an impoverished area of Philadelphia, the kids are taught respect and how to be upstanding citizens. Teachers work hard to create a safe and warm educational environment. Special events boost the moral of both staff and students. Special needs children are given a high level of attention. In general, a very good school in west Phila.
