Nebinger is a wonderful and diverse community. The Principal is truly amazing and, in spite of the PA budget crunch, has brought back music, art, dance, and theater. Our son is loving his time at Nebinger and is thriving. He is learning so much from his teachers and from his classmates. The school not only offers one of the best autism support programs in the city, it also has a robust and challenging mentally gifted program. Every teacher we have met is engaged, dedicated, and goes above and beyond for the kids. There are also dedicated community groups, including the Friends of Nebinger and the Home & School, that work tirelessly to bring new resources into the school. Nebinger is such a loving, diverse, and open environment. More and more young families are staying in the catchment and choosing Nebinger. We could not be happier that we stayed and sent our child to Nebinger. All of that said, this is just a website. You should take a tour and see for yourself.

Develops character: Strongly agree

The school, staff and principal are great. They genuinely care about the students and work hard. They go above and beyond what is required of them. The principal is in the classroom daily and the teachers take personal interest in their students. This is my daughter's first year here and she loves it. She is learning so much.

Worst school ever....teachers don't care and the ones who do care do not really provide the support that students might need. They do not teach they just entertain the students....children are better off with no education at all...unless you want your kids in a non American dialect....which is awful....!

Nebinger, its principal, and teachers convinced me to remove my son from the Philadelphia public schools. Extremely negative environment for learning established by new principal. Numerous fights in the often unsupervised playground as well as supervised cafeteria. Half of the children in my son's 1st grade class spoke little or no English. The teacher spoke only English albeit poorly. Once a week a bi-lingual aid would come to the school, but that was hardly adequate in meeting the school's needs. My son's teacher choose to amuse herself and her class by making fun of my son's name. I attempted to report this to the school and the district administration but they would take no action. The few good teachers at Nebinger seemed frustrated in their circumstances.

My child is in an autism support classroom at Nebinger. He just started September 2009 and what a difference I see in him already. His teacher is truly dedicated and cares alot about her students.
